Judge: No, feds can’t nab all Apple devices and try everyone’s fingerprints


United States

Riana Pfefferkorn, one of the lawyers who first found this judicial opinion and publicized it on Twitter, told Ars that part of the problem with these types of cases is that this cutting edge of judicial analysis is largely happening “outside the public eye.”

“In many instances, there may be little or no legal analysis by the court when it approves a request for a search warrant or other court order,” she wrote. “Examples like this may be the tip of an iceberg. I hope that more judges will join this Illinois judge in not only conducting a thorough legal analysis of novel requests for gathering electronic evidence, but also publishing those opinions publicly.””
