By Joseph Ax NEW YORK (Reuters) – A federal judge in New York has granted prosecutors access to a Gmail users emails as part of a criminal probe, in a decision that could fan the debate over how aggressively the government may pursue data if doing so may invade peoples privacy. U.S. Magistrate Judge Gabriel Gorenstein said on Friday he had authorized a warrant to be served on Google Inc for the emails of an unnamed individual who is the target of a money laundering investigation. Gorenstein said his decision ran counter to several other federal judges rulings in similar cases, including in Washington, D.C., and Kansas, that sweeping warrants may give the government improper access to too many emails, not just relevant ones. Google did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
