EU to intervene in Microsoft’s U.S. Supreme Court data protection case

The European Union is to make a submission to the U.S. Supreme Court in its hearing of the U.S. Department of Justice’s appeal against a ruling which prevented prosecutors from gaining access to emails held by Microsoft in Ireland.

The case has attracted significant attention from technology and media companies due to concerns that an unfavourable final ruling could deter customers from using cloud services because of concerns that their data could be seized.
