One part of the case has been argued before the state appellate court. A decision is expected in 90 days. Here is a link to the story.
Some of you may remember that Stephen Larson is the attorney for the LDME. Some of you may also remember what his private investigator did in the Colonies scandal. Fruit doesn’t fall too far from the tree.
I was looking for a photo to use for this story and noted a recent update to Larson’s Wikipedia entry:
In February 2016, Larson was tapped to file a legal brief supporting the U.S. government’s efforts to force Apple Inc. to unlock the encrypted iPhone belonging to one of the shooters in the 2015 San Bernardino attack. 
Excuse me if it is old news. I’ve only been following the Apple situation so far due to other things going on in my life. Anyway, I found it interesting especially since Mike Ramos is also out front on this issue.
