Google has up to 60 additional days to comply with MS subpoenas

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) -

Google will have 60 additional days to comply to subpoenas issued by the State of Mississippi.

That is the word from Attorney General Jim Hood after judge Monday denied the company's request for a temporary restraining order against Hood's subpoena for information on company operations, like how imported prescription drugs are advertised.

In court papers, Google described Hood's actions as a "sustained campaign of threats".

But the attorney general said he is working to prevent people from getting illegal access to prescription drugs. Following the decision, Hood released a statement saying:

"Cooler heads prevailed today and the court did not grant Google's request for a temporary restraining order... the parties have agreed to maintain the status quo pending a hearing set for February 13th, 2015."
