Rackemann litigator Gordon Orloff is serving as local counsel to Yahoo! Inc. in a matter that the Supreme Judicial Court has taken for direct appellate review.

Yahoo prevailed in Probate Court in a dispute concerning whether the Administrators of an Estate were entitled to the contents of the decedent’s email account. The Administrators appealed and the Supreme Judicial Court took the matter for direct review on the issue of whether the Stored Communications Act, 18 U.S.C. § 2702, prohibits Yahoo! from disclosing the emails sought by the Administrators.
