Google and Microsoft ask secret court to disclose specific number of security requests

Google(s goog) and Microsoft(s msft) have been badgering the FISA court, a secret body that oversees spy requests, to release the number of Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act requests they receive every year. The government has yet to respond, but instead has asked for six different extensions. Now, the tech firms have amended their complaint to ask for permission to disclose a specific number, not (as before) a broad range. Yahoo(s yhoo) today filed its own lawsuit about the issue.
