Snowden’s Email Service May be Accused of Contempt of Court Order

According to civil rights lawyers, the founder of Lavabit email service, Ladar Levison, is challenging a contempt of court order.
The matter is that when the case was brought against him, Levison initially refused to hand over the encryption keys to the authorities and preferred to shutdown the entire service. At the moment, the case is with the fourth US circuit Court of Appeals in Virginia.


The judges will deliver a decision in 45 days – the experts explain that if Levison’s appeal is rejected, he will be held in contempt of court and the legal issues surrounding the case won’t be resolved.
The Lavabit founder has argued that the authorities put an undue burden on the service by forcing it to hand over the SSL encryption keys as part of the investigation into well-known Snowden’s leak.
In result, Ladar Levison shut the mail service and has since argued that it is a violation of a Fourth Amendment right which prohibits unreasonable searches and seizures.

The lawyers reveal that the hearing suggested the court was more interested in the procedural details of the case and the founder’s behavior rather than in Fourth Amendment issues about the legal position of encryption use.
The judges reiterated that the first order only asked for information, not for SSL keys. The problem is that the information could have been provided only by handing over those keys.

Lavabit was known worldwide as a secure email service where account holders used an encrypted key to access their mail, and they were the only one to have those keys.
The service founder explained that he could have provided the access to a single user’s account, but “live” access, demanded by the FBI, could have been provided only by compromising the entire system and its 410,000 users.

6 years ago, Hushmail found itself in similar situation and chose to acquiesce to a FBI demand.
The result was predictable – its reputation collapsed.
Now Lavabit is trying to argue that the government is making an unreasonable demand on the business and use it as a legal defense against a court order.
However, the judges in the case preferred to move away from encryption or any mention of the Fourth Amendment argument. They pointed out that the encryption key came in only after Lavabit was refusing to give FBI the unencrypted data.

Embolism avatarAlthough not American it has to be said people like Pastor Anderson on youtube www.freedomsphoenix.com/Subjects/00263-LAST-steven-anderson-checkpoint-arrest.htm some do get it aired to some degree and he took a couple of tazings for the team (not sure if they shot him in the nutz, but he did`nt sound happy when they zapped him) 4th and 5th Amendment issue although they only upheld the 4th I think,must amuse some Americans being stopped at checkpoints 100`s of miles from the Mexican border by a Mexican and asked if they are American and to prove they have a right to be in their own country by the roadside.

No avatarNo, if you did that they'd buy or steal it. Now, if you provide a service that allows a patriot to securely expose treason being perpetrated by the government(NSA levying a cold war on the public) then you will be an enemy of thhe state.

sn3h1t87 avatarThis clarifies why I think judges are unprincipled scum....Juries on trials of any importance to the establishment are rigged. We're all puppets in the theater of illusions.
