Washington, D.C., partner and chief data scientist Bennett Borden was quoted in a Bloomberg BNA article titled, “Google Data Privacy Fight Hinges on Cloud Storage Tech.” The article discussed a recent court order that Alphabet Inc.'s Google turn over customer data stored overseas.

Bennett noted that cloud computing companies may be “offending” courts and judges by moving their data to data centers around the world. He added that courts view the practice of moving data around the world as a “business practice of hiding data.”

Bennett also noted two cases that highlight the “stronger constitutional basis” for overturning Stored Communication Act warrants “where the data is located in another country compared to when the data is located in the U.S.”
