The lawsuit naming the Justice Department and Atto

first_imgThe lawsuit naming the Justice Department and Attorney General Loretta Lynch is a big step for Microsoft in its two-year feud with the U.S. government over customer privacy.According to the report, “Microsoft called the 1986 Electronic Communications Privacy Act unconstitutional, citing its own First Amendment free speech rights and its customers’ Fourth Amendment right to know if the government has searched or seized their property.”The law places the company under a gag order, according to the complaint. Microsoft is concerned for its customers’ trust in the company, saying that it wants to “preserve its ability to sell Internet-based services,” reported Bloomberg. The company has been battling with the government even before issues like the San Bernardino iPhone case, which Microsoft was a part of due to its support of Apple’s refusal to agree with the government’s order.As for the current issue of data gag orders, the Justice Department is reviewing the filing, said spokeswoman Emily Pierce.RoboVM to stop developmentFor those who have supported RoboVM for its two years of existence, developers may need to pay close attention to the organization’s recent announcement that it is winding down and stopping development.RoboVM wrote in a blog post that after it looked at the landscape for mobile development with Java, it decided to stop development with RoboVM.If a developer has an app developed with RoboVM, there will be no impact on the app that customers are currently shipping.
