If Google is secretly helping the National Security Agency with its spying activities neither one of them has to say squat about it.
So rules a DC court.
The court turned down a request by the Electronic Privacy Information Center asking for information about Google’s relationship with the NSA. The request was filed under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) but the NSA fought the request and won.
Had the ruling gone the other way, it might have slowed down the controversial bill known as the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA).
“Any information pertaining to the relationship between Google and NSA would reveal protected information about NSA’s implementation of its information assurance mission,” Judge Janice Rogers Brown wrote in the appeals opinion.
