The case has an air of mystery about it. Many documents have been filed under seal. A federal appeals court referred to the central entities only as “company” and “law firm.”

In the U.S. Supreme Court, redacted copies of briefs reveal that that “law firm” is one specializing in international tax law, and the owner of “company” is an “early promoter of bitcoin” who “expatriated from the United States in 2014.”

  • It might seem, on first glance, that this isn't related to
  • telecommunications.
  • However, law-enforcement at all levels of government - and some
  • private investigators - have access to "pen-recorder" data which
  • shows what numbers I have dialed on my home phone. If a policeman
  • thinks I've committed a crime, (s)he will look at my recent phone
  • calls, and if one of them was made to an attorney, (s)he might
  • decide that fact is sufficient to justify devoting resources to the
  • case which would not otherwise be available.
  • We've all heard the adage "Be careful what you wish for." We all
  • might wish for more effective and timely law enforcement - but it’s
  • important to consider the costs of getting our wish fulfilled.
