DRIPA inconsistent with EU law

The High Court has found that section 1 of the Data Retention and Investigatory Powers Act 2014 (DRIPA) is inconsistent with EU law.

The UK Parliament adopted DRIPA in July 2014 as emergency legislation to establish a replacement regime for the retention of communications data by communications service providers after the ECJ had declared the Data Retention Directive (2006/24/EC) invalid.
