As we noted, a few weeks ago, a court in California ruled that NSLs were unconstitutional. And, now, it's come out that Google appears to be fighting an NSL, potentially in response to that very ruling. Of course, it appears that this news of Google fighting back wasn't supposed to be public either.

Well they have finally come clean about it. Sort of. My favorite part is these two quotes from the editor in chief of CNET Lindsey Turrentine. First. "Going forward, I will do everything within my power to prevent this situation from happening again." Followed by. "If I had to face this dilemma again, I would not quit. I stand by my team and the years of work they have put into making CNET what it is." Hmmm
