Judge orders Google to hand over limited information March 18, 2006

Posted by rjdohnert in Software reviews.

Judge James Ware has ordered Google to hand over 50,000 URL’s but was reluctant to ask for users search terms.


My take, BULLSHIT.  The DOJ was only interested in a certain numbver of search queries not “Vanity searches” not anything that implicates personal information.  Besides if someone is typing in “download kiddy porn videos”  the dude deserves jail.

“Judge’s Tells DoJ No on Google Search Queries”

You may want to read our feed on this subject as Google doesn’t have to turn over anything anymore. BTW, I filed a lawsuit today. Please come blog at our site! 🙂

At any rate, it was on google’s official blog
“Google will not have to hand over any user’s search queries to the government. That’s what a federal judge ruled today when he decided to drastically limit a subpoena issued to Google by the Department of Justice.”

They removed it recently, like within a few hours, but ultimately it said that google had won. They probably released it too soon. Oh well. It was on digg too.

Hey, RJ, you know your move from Blogger has become a minor news story, right? You should comment on it, or shoot me an email.
