Microsoft Lobbied Mississippi AG To Censor Speech, Google Says

Microsoft joined the entertainment industry in lobbying Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood "to pressure Google to censor speech," the company says in new court papers.

The company makes the assertion as part of its request for documents from Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe, a law firm that represents Microsoft. Google says that Orrick joined with lobbyists from the entertainment industry to convince Hood to target Google.

As part of this effort, Orrick and the Motion Picture Association of America were among the hosts of a December 2013 fundraiser for Hood at the New Orleans steakhouse Galatoire's 33.
