Kennyhertz Perry’s Braden Perry discussed Apple’s refusal to decrypt an iPhone with Grant Gross, Senior Editor of IDG News Service, the wire service representing PCWorld, Computerworld, MacWorld, Network World, CIO and dozens of other leading tech publications worldwide. The FBI claims that iPhone, which belonged to one of the San Bernardino shooters, may be helpful in their investigation.
Perry, a former federal enforcement attorney now practicing government investigations and litigation, stated that while unlikely, Judge Pym could hold Apple in contempt of court if the company refuses to cooperate with her order and could impose significant fines.
So far, Apple is refusing. The court should rule in the next few weeks.
