NEW YORK -- A federal appeals court Thursday said prosecutors cannot force U.S. companies like Microsoft to turn over customer emails and other data stored on servers overseas -- a ruling the government suggested could hamper national security investigations.

The three-judge panel of the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously overturned a lower court's contempt finding against Microsoft for not handing over a customer's emails stored in Ireland. Federal prosecutors wanted the material for use in a drug trafficking investigation.

Workers in plants run by the largest U.S. poultry producers are regularly being denied bathroom breaks and as a result some are reduced to wearing diapers while working on the processing line, Oxfam America said in a report Wednesday. "It's not just their dignity that suffers: they are in danger of serious health problems," said Oxfam America, the U.S. arm of the U.K.-based global development group. The group works for a "just world without poverty" and focuses on topics ranging from refugees in Greece to malnutrition. The report cited unnamed workers from Tyson Foods, Pilgrim's Pride, Perdue Farms and Sanderson Farms who said that supervisors mock them, ignore requests and threaten punishment or firing. When they can go, they wait in long lines even though they are given limited time, sometimes 10 minutes, according to the report. Some workers have urinated or defecated themselves while working because they can't hold on any longer.
