Supreme Judicial Court Takes Appeal in Case Involving the Stored Communications Act

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Pierce & Madell, Boston, MA, Robert L. Kirby, JrBy Robert L. Kirby, Jr.

In Ajemian v. Yahoo!, we represent the personal representatives of an estate seeking to gain access to the contents of a decedent’s Yahoo! email account. The Probate Court ruled that the Stored Communications Act, 18 U.S.C. 2701 et. seq., prohibited Yahoo! from divulging the contents of the email account to the personal representatives. We appealed. The Supreme Judicial Court has, sua sponte, transferred the appeal from the Appeals Court. We expect the Supreme Judicial Court to hear the appeal in early 2017.
