Facebook On Fighting Bulk Search Warrants In Court

Apparently Facebook has been fighting a court order to turn over data from 381 accounts since last year.

Of the 381 people whose accounts were the subject of these warrants, 62 were later charged in a disability fraud case. This means that no charges will be brought against more than 300 people whose data was sought by the government without prior notice to the people affected. The government also obtained gag orders that prohibited us from discussing this case and notifying any of the affected people until now.
