article description
Regarding extraterritorial search warrants for electronically stored information, courts must decide—implicitly or explicitly—if they possess the power to hear the issues, decide factual and legal matters, and render decisions based on the parties’ requests. Because jurisdiction is a crucial issue in every case, courts need sufficiently clear language to evidence the authority they wield. If the language is unclear, judges will need to interpret the language to resolve any ambiguities.
