The wheels have officially come off the wagon mother fuckers.... If this was a a little league game they would have to call the Mercy Rule ...Corporations have not only beat our right's ass they are now running up the score... "Sweeping" subpoena violates rights of those who spoke out against oil giant's devastating actions in Ecuador - Lauren McCauley, staff writer The US government is not the only entity who, with judicial approval, is amassing massive amounts of personal information against their so-called enemies. A federal judge has ruled to allow Chevron, through a subpoena to Microsoft, to collect the IP usage records and identity information for email accounts owned by over 100 environmental activists, journalists and attorneys. The oil giant is demanding the records in an attempt to cull together a lawsuit which alleges that the company was the victim of a conspiracy in the $18.2 billion judgment against it fordumping 18.5 billion gallons of oil waste in the Ecuadorean Amazon, causing untold damage to the rainforest. The "sweeping" subpoena was one of three issued to Google, Yahoo! and Microsoft.
