Feds Defuse Legal Battle With Facebook

Right before a pivotal court hearing, prosecutors moved to defuse a dispute with Facebook over the U.S government’s plan to use search warrants to gather information about users without their knowledge. The specifics of the fight are unclear. It stems from Facebook’s opposition to court orders, which bar the company from informing users about the demands for their data. The timing of court action and other clues in legal filings suggest the federal probe relates to violence surrounding protests against President Donald Trump’s inauguration in January.
