A county judge in Minnesota signed a warrant for the personal information of individuals who searched for an identity theft victim's name.  The warrant covers a specific time period, and requests names and other account details of those searching for the victim.

According to StateScoop:
"Imagine a completely innocent party like the victim's neighbor, former high school classmate, or ex-partner, who had the misfortune of Googling the victim's name, and would then be subject to law enforcement scrutiny and subsequent prosecution based on such circumstantial evidence," Electronic Frontier Foundation staff attorney Stephanie Lacambra said in an email to StateScoop. "The prospects for the future of online privacy and anonymous access to information are chilling."
