Microsoft on 30 August 2013 declared that the battle to solve the secret US government requests for the Internet user data would be sorted out in the court of law.

Microsoft as well as Google filed the suits in the federal court in the month of June 2013. The argument was the right to make public, the information about the user data requests which were made under the auspices of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Both Google as well as Microsoft agreed six different times for extending the deadline for the US Government in order to react to the lawsuits, but it all ended without the conclusion.

The US officials, in the meanwhile, on 29 August 2013 declared that they would start publishing the annual tallies of national security requests for the Internet user data. The argument in context with this was that apart from providing the number of requests, it was also important to disclose the context regarding which the information was being sought.
