With May First/Riseup Server Seizure, FBI Overreaches Yet Again

Yet the expansive search warrant contained no limitations to curb law enforcement’s ability to rummage through the server, and look at anything it wanted. Sadly, it’s not the first time the government’s heavy hand went too far and resulted in an expansive — and expensive — seizure of digital devices.

And as we’ve argued before, search warrants for electronic devices shouldn’t be limitless, but narrowly drawn by a judge to limit law enforcement’s ability to rummage through reams of data having nothing to do with the investigation at hand.
