New York Law Journal

“The CLOUD Act is about to stir up a legal storm. The act was originally passed in March 2018 to ensure US law enforcement officials could obtain information from US-based communications providers even if that information is stored overseas. But the act has another, more controversial provision: Under certain circumstances, it permits foreign law enforcement officials to serve production orders directly on US-based providers and requires the providers to appear in court overseas if they want to challenge the orders. This possibility may soon be reality, as a novel data-sharing agreement under the act between the United States and the United Kingdom takes effect this spring.”
