D.C. judge limits scope of government warrant for data from anti-Trump site

WASHINGTON, Oct 10 (Reuters) - A District of Columbia Superior Court judge on Tuesday agreed to limit the scope of the data the U.S. Justice Department is seeking from an anti-Trump website, saying innocent peoples’ identities must be safeguarded to protect their Constitutional rights.

The order from Chief Judge Robert Morin was hailed as a victory by DreamHost, the Los Angeles-based web hosting company, which has been fighting back against the government over its request to turn over information from the website disruptj20.org.
