Microsoft was shot down in court twice this year when it challenged a US court order demanding access to a user's emails stored on a Dublin, Ireland server. But it hasn't given up yet, and now Ireland's government is finally speaking up about the issue. The country has just filed court papers echoing Microsoft's sentiments that the US court should ask Irish authorities for help if it wants to look at the user's emails. Redmond's main argument is that if a US search warrant can't be used in a foreign land, then a court order also shouldn't have any power over data stored overseas. According to that filing, Ireland will consider and process any request asking for access to the data in question "as expeditiously as possible," but US courts are obligated to respect Irish sovereignty.
