psahl told The Guardian Lavabit appeared to be the first technology company to shut down rather than comply with a court-sanctioned government surveillance order.

"I am unaware of any situation in which a service provider chose to shut down rather than comply with a court order they felt violated the Constitution," he said.

He added he considered the decision by Lavabit owner-operator Ladar Levison "a very bold stand."
