Thanks, Colin.

The one I received seemed very reasonable in language and scope, and came with contact information for someone with a title that implied that they work specifically on "cyber crimes". I am currently anticipating that this will be a non-event.

Either way, I wanted to share this event with the relay community since one of the questions that I had when first starting out was how much "administrative overhead" could be expected as a result of operating relays.

If anyone else received these but does not feel comfortable posting about them on the list, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly with anything you feel comfortable sharing. I am not able to provide legal advice, but if this looks like a situation where legal advice will be required, I have some contacts who may be able to provide assistance. Thank you for running exit relays. > On Jun 8, 2018, at 5:43 AM, Matt Traudt wrote: > > > > On 06/08/2018 01:42 AM, "IPfail (Tor Admin)" wrote: >> FYI, I received a subpoena from a US based court to produce information >> about individual(s) who were using one of our exit nodes at a specific >> date/time.
