The four tech giants have filed an amicus brief in support of Google, after a Pennsylvania court ruled that Google had to hand over emails it stored outside the US in response to an FBI warrant.

An amicus brief is filed by people or companies who have an interest in the case, but aren't directly involved. In this case, it is in the tech giants' interest to keep US law enforcement from accessing customer data stored outside the US.
