On April 23, 2018, the U.S. Supreme Court vacated a district court’s contempt citation against Microsoft and directed the court to dismiss the Government’s application for a warrant directing Microsoft to produce emails stored in Ireland. The Court acted after concluding that legislation adopted by Congress in March 2018 had caused the dispute over the warrant request to become moot. The Court’s order was a satisfactory conclusion to the Supreme Court case, in which WLF filed a brief supporting Microsoft’s position that the Government’s power to seize records for law enforcement purposes did not extend overseas. WLF argued that the appropriate method for obtaining emails stored in Ireland is to request assistance from the Irish government, or else to ask Congress to amend the law. The Government chose the latter course, and the legislation adopted in March represented a compromise that satisfied both sides and eliminated the need for the Court to address the scope of the old law.
