Judge To Order Google To Hand Over Search Data

The judge in the Justice Department’s demand for Google’s search history has said that he will order Google to turn over the data.

CNN reports:

A federal judge said Tuesday he intends to require Google Inc. to turn over some information to the Department of Justice in its quest to revive a law making it harder for children to see online pornography.

U.S. District Judge James Ware did not immediately say whether the data will include words that users entered into the Internet’s leading search engine.

Looks like that fight’s done, unless Google’s serious enough to take this to the next level. I wonder, is it normal for a judge to announce how he plans to rule?

  1. So… this stuff is about protecting (cough) the children of the United States from pornography, right?

    That means there is no reason whatsoever for Google to give out search queries from other continents (hint: Europe).
