Barnum on FBI v. Apple

Jeffery Barnum has posted Fictional Brief for the United States in United States v. Pear on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

In June, 2016, the Newseum hosted a mock Supreme Court hearing on whether the United States could compel a technology company to bypass its own security safeguards built into their devices. The fact pattern mirrored the real-world dispute between the FBI and Apple over access to the iPhone used by the San Bernadino shooter.

This brief was written for the "government." However, any views or ideas are mine alone and do not necessarily express any position of the United States Government.

The Newseum is a museum in Washington, D.C. dedicated to freedom of the press and First Amendment issues.
