Facebook Takes Search Warrant Challenge to Top New York Court
Facebook is heading to New York state's highest court to challenge search warrants seeking information from user accounts.
Prosecutors in Manhattan sought search warrants in 2013 for the accounts of 381 individuals in connection with a disability benefits fraud case against New York City police and fire retirees.
Facebook challenged the warrants, but lower courts sided with prosecutors, ruling it was up to individual users to challenge the warrants seeking their information.
