ACLU Files to Join Microsoft Lawsuit Against U.S. on Secret Surveillance Requests

SEATTLE - The American Civil Liberties Union filed a motion today seeking to join Microsoft’s lawsuit challenging gag orders that prevent the company from telling its customers when the government has ordered it to turn over their data.

The ACLU filed a motion in federal district court to intervene in the case brought last month by Microsoft, which said it supports the ACLU’s intervention. The ACLU seeks to join the case on its own behalf as an organization that relies on Microsoft’s products.
