A new ruling states that Microsoft will not have to hand over information that is stored on a server in Ireland to authorities in the U.S. This comes after a New York judge sided with law enforcement and penalized Microsoft for not complying. Following that initial ruling, a three judge panel at the Appeals Court ended up siding with Microsoft.
