Microsoft sues DOJ over customer data requests

Microsoft Corp.filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Justice over customer data searches.

In an April 14 filing with the U.S. District Court, Western Districtof Washington at Seattle, the software giant said that government requests for customerdata allegedly violates the First Amendment, which allows the company to discusswith customers how the government conducts investigations, and the Fourth Amendmentthat allows people and businesses to know if any government entity searches or seizestheir property.

Microsoft said it received 5,624 federal demands for customerinformation or data between September 2014 and March 2016. Additionally, 2,576 ofthe orders had secrecy orders with the demands that barred the company from informingthe affected customers.

Further, 1,752 of the secrecy orders contained no time limit,meaning that Microsoft could forever be barred from telling the affected customerabout the government's intrusion.

Microsoft is seeking an order and judgment that declares secrecyorders to be unconstitutional under the First Amendment and the Fourth Amendment.
