Judge Orders Amazon to Turn Over Echo Recordings

The Infinite Brief
A New Hampshire judge has ordered Amazon to turn over two days of Amazon Echo recordings in a double murder case.

The order granting the search warrant said that there is “probable cause to believe” that the Echo picked up “audio recordings capturing the attack” and “any events that preceded or succeeded the attack.”

Amazon is also directed to turn over any “information identifying any cellular devices that were linked to the smart speaker during that time period,” the order said.

When reached, an Amazon spokesperson did not comment — but the company told the Associated Press last week that it won’t release the information “without a valid and binding legal demand properly served on us.”
