"Amazon will not release customer information without a valid and binding legal demand properly served on us," said a spokesperson, adding: "Amazon objects to overbroad or otherwise inappropriate demands as a matter of course."

Fair enough on the proper legal subpoenas being served. But how can they contest the requirements being overbroad, the scope is not unreasonable. The judge is not asking for all recordings across devices, just that one from the date of the murder to the discovery of the bodies To have then argued against the subpoena on the basis of customer privacy. REALLY!
