Microsoft has reached a deal with the U.S. government in which it will agree to be held in contempt of court in order to move an email privacy case on to appeal, Ars Technica reports. The case involves a U.S. government demand for emails stored on a server in Dublin, Ireland. The Obama administration has said the company must comply with valid warrants for data, even if it’s held overseas, the report states. “Everyone agrees this case can and will proceed to the appeals court,” said Microsoft in a statement. “This is simply about finding the appropriate procedure for that to happen.”
