DOJ Agreement with tech companies permits limited sharing of FISA Court orders

Via TechFreedom President Berin Szoka: “Today, the Department of Justice announced that it has reached an agreement with Google and Microsoft to allow them and other tech companies to report, within broad ranges, the number of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court orders they receive, and the number of user accounts surveilled. Google and Microsoft have agreed to drop their lawsuit, which argued that they have a First Amendment right to report such information, but reserve the right to refile the lawsuit.”
