Microsoft, Google, others back Facebook in New York privacy dispute

John Ribeiro | Aug. 11, 2014
Key technology companies including Google, Microsoft and Twitter on Friday filed in support of Facebook's dispute with the New York County District Attorney's office over the collection of user data in bulk under a gag order for a fraud investigation.

Describing themselves as the "New York Amici," the small and medium-size platforms said smaller companies may not have the resources to litigate each search warrant or court order, which makes it important to provide users with notice and an independent opportunity to object.

The New York County District Attorney's office could not be immediately reached for comment. Facebook said it did not have a comment beyond its remarks in June.
