Nossaman Partner, Ashar Ahmed, Quoted in CQ Roll Call

03/17/2017 CQ Roll Call


Nossaman Partner, Ashar Ahmed was prominently featured in the CQ Roll Call story “Leading Tech Firms Back Google In Overseas Data Privacy Case.”  The story examines how many of the nation’s largest email and cloud storage providers weighed in against a federal magistrate judge’s decision last month requiring Google to search email data stored overseas—a ruling contrary to a recent appellate court decision involving Microsoft Corp. data stored in Ireland. Mr. Ahmed commented on the application of the Stored Communications Act for the story, stating "Any sort of ambiguity in the application of the Stored Communications Act will clearly have an adverse impact on U.S. service providers' capability to compete globally.  Since 1986, when the Act was passed, the world of technology has exploded, with service providers going global to stay competitive.  The Act clearly needs to account for this reality by balancing individual privacy of customers and law enforcement agencies' need to protect the country."
