UK High Court grants Cambridge Analytica search warrant to ICO

A British High Court judge has granted an application by the country’s data protection watchdog for a warrant to search Cambridge Analytica’s London offices, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) said on Friday.
“We are pleased with the decision of the judge, and we plan to execute the warrant shortly,” an ICO spokesman said.
Elizabeth Denham, head of ICO, sought a warrant to search Cambridge Analytica’s office after a whistleblower revealed it had harvested the private information of millions of Facebook users to support Donald Trump‘s 2016 U.S. presidential campaign.
