Microsoft is a US company. It has servers in Ireland. A US lawsuit sought information on those Irish servers. Microsoft claimed a US warrant did not extend to Ireland. The courts said as a US company, the warrant extended anywhere Microsoft had servers. This decision is confirmed in the CLOUD Act...
Several of the root servers of the internet (which direct traffic to the top level domains such as .com and .net) are located in the US. Maybe the CLOUD Act applies.
@onan what's the lawsuit about?
@GrandHighInquisitor The lawsuit was part of the War on Drugs.
