"This order concerns a US citizen and US company, with offshore data. The precedent would be limited to such cases or similar."

If I understand the article correctly a part of the argument rests on Google moving data about between jurisdictions for their own convenience. I can very easily see a lawyer arguing that the precedent applies whatever the nationality of the data subject and getting away with it. That's similar, thin end of the wedge etc.
