Apple vs. the FBI: The Justice Department Fires Back

Posted By Administration, Monday, February 22, 2016

The Justice Department has filed a motion to force Apple to comply with a judge’s order to help the FBI unlock an iPhone that belonged to one of the San Bernardino attackers.  

The motion comes just days after Tim Cook, the Apple CEO, in a letter to customers, described the government’s request as overreach, and called its effect “chilling.” In essence, Cook said: The “U.S. government has asked us for something we simply do not have, and something we consider too dangerous to create. They have asked us to build a backdoor to the iPhone.”

The Justice Department, in its motion filed Friday before the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California, accused Apple of “repudiating” the order ofMagistrate Judge Sheri Pym.
