Apple ally Ted Olson urges Congress to decide on encryption

Ted Olson, the mythical lawyer who just lately signed on with Apple to lend a hand of their case against the FBI, has given a few of his feelings on the case in a brand new interview. Echoing sentiments in the past made by way of Apple executives, Olsen stated that Congress, now not the courts, will have to make without equal choice on encryption of private units. To depart it to courts, he believes, may lead to wildly inconsistent instructions on the problem for the foreseeable long run.

From Bloomberg:

"You would possibly have one courtroom going a method and some other courtroom going in a different way," Olson stated. "If you do that on a case-via-case foundation, you are going to have other results."

Olson joined forces with Apple following the corporate's resistance to a federal courtroom order compelling it to lend a hand the FBI in unlocking the iPhone 5c utilized by probably the most San Bernardino shooters. Olson has a historical past with top-profile instances, having argued on the profitable facets of each Bush v Gore in 2000, and Hollingsworth v. Perry in 2013, which struck down California's similar-intercourse marriage ban.
