+ - Lavabit.com owner: 'I could be arrested' for resisting surveillance order->

Submitted by Zak3056
Zak3056 (69287) writes "NBC News is reporting that, "The owner of an encrypted email service used by ex-NSA contractor Edward Snowden said he has been threatened with criminal charges for refusing to comply with a secret surveillance order to turn over information about his customers.

"I could be arrested for this action," Ladar Levison told NBC News about his decision to shut down his company, Lavabit LLC, in protest over a secret court order he had received from a federal court that is overseeing the investigation into Snowden."

--I seem to recall that the constitution has something in it prohibiting involuntary servitude, but I could be mistaken."
