True, but there is a difference in this case, since I could probably find a way to do discovery of the warrant/subpoena that was delivered to the ISP--assuming it's not an NSL.  I would assume that going into court with evidence of the warrant/subpoena would be sufficient to grant standing.  Or the notice of intercepted communications that I've seen a few times would work too.

In $DAYJOB, we're all colo/cloud, so the stuff we get specifies a specific date.  Have not come across any that specify a few seconds of time as another poster noted.

In any case IANAL, so who knows until the cases start showing up on the dockets.....
