Esworthy Quoted in American Bar Association’s Litigation News About Government Seizure of Electronic Data Stored Overseas

Matt Esworthy was recently quoted in an article from the American Bar Association, titled, “Electronic Data Stored Abroad Now Subject to Federal Seizure”. This article discussed The Clarifying Lawful Overseas Use of Data (CLOUD) Act, and how the federal government can seize electronic data stored abroad by serving a warrant on a U.S.-based company.

Esworthy, one of the leaders in the field of Technology Law, says, “The Act grants foreign governments the ability to collect data directly from U.S. companies without requiring a U.S. warrant, in violation of the Fourth Amendment”, along with additional insights into the matter.
