Company Caught in Texas Data Center Raid Sues and Loses
Kim Zetter writes on Threat Level:
A company whose servers were seized in a recent FBI raid on Texas data centers applied for a temporary restraining order to force the agency to return its servers, but was denied by a U.S. district court last week.More here.
The company, Liquid Motors, provides inventory management and marketing services to national automobile dealers, such as AutoNation. It was one of about 50 companies put out of business last week when the FBI raided Core IP Networks, one of two data centers and co-location facilities raided by the FBI's Dallas office in the last month for an investigation into VoIP fraud.
Although Liquid Motors was not a target of the investigation, the FBI seized all of the company's servers and backup tapes in the raid.
