San Francisco: A US judge has ruled that Google Inc must comply with the FBI’s warrantless demands for customer data, rejecting the company’s argument that the government’s practice of issuing such requests to telecommunication companies, Internet service providers, banks and others is unconstitutional and unnecessary.

FBI counter-terrorism agents began issuing the secret, so-called national security letters, which don’t require a judge’s approval, after Congress passed the USA Patriot Act in the wake of the September 11, 2001, attacks.

The letters are used to collect unlimited kinds of sensitive, private information such as financial and phone records, and they have prompted complaints of government privacy violations in the name of national security.

  1. Tis no surprise that the Ninth Circuit district makes a ruling this way. This is a liberals safe harbor for court rulings, they are notorious.

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
