The Commission has hired US attorney Gina Durham fight the case.
The lawsuit was filed in the Northern District court of California on Monday.
The Commission is seeking the information to validate claims made by Opposition Leader Dr Keith Rowley that the senior cabinet members conspired to enact Section 34 of
the Administration of Justice (Indictable Offences) Act to aid a select group of persons who are before the court.
He also alleged that the cabinet members had hatched a plot to a plot to target the journalist who broke the story.
Dr. Rowley made the claims during a motion of no confidence file against the Government and the Prime Minister where he read series of emails to support his claims.
He alleged that Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar, Attorney General Anand Ramlogan, Minister of Local Government Surujrattan Rambachan and then national security
adviser to the Prime Minister, Gary Griffith were the persons were behind the plot.
AG Ramlogan denied the claims at a media conference where he said the email addressed use was bogus.
A few days later the Prime Minister visited the Police Headquarters in Port of Spain where she gave officers her personal computer and cellphone.
Meanwhile, AG Ramlogan has welcomed this development in the investigation.
He said the Commission should have done this a long time ago.
The AG revealed he had already filed a lawsuit against Google.
