Justice Department asks to postpone hearing in iPhone encryption case [Update: motion granted]

Just an afternoon in advance of the primary scheduled courtroom hearing in Apple's encryption feud with the FBI, the G.A. Department of Justice (DoJ) has requested that the hearing be postponed in order to check a possible new means of unlocking the iPhone on the middle of the case with out Apple's lend a hand. From Politico:

"On Sunday, March 20, 2016, an out of doors birthday party established to the FBI a imaginable approach for unlocking [terrorist Syed] Farook's iPhone," federal prosecutors stated in a submitting Monday afternoon. "Testing is needed to decide whether or not this is a attainable approach so that they can now not compromise knowledge on Farook's iPhone. If the process is workable, it will have to get rid of the will for the the aid of Apple Inc. ("Apple") set forth in the All Writs Act Order in this case."

"Accordingly, to supply time for checking out the process, the federal government hereby requests that the hearing set for March 22, 2016 be vacated," executive legal professionals wrote.

Pending the good fortune of the federal government's newly found out way of breaking into the Farook's iPhone, it is imaginable the case will not be driven to any extent further. There isn't any phrase but on whether or not the DoJ's request might be granted, however we're going to update this publish with additional info because it turns into to be had.

Update: Engadget now studies that the courtroom has agreed to vacate the March 22 hearing, ordering the federal government to document a standing record by way of April 5:

The Court has reviewed the federal government's Ex Parte Application for a Continuance. GOOD CAUSE HAVING BEEN SHOWN, the Court hereby ORDERS that the hearing in this topic set for March 22, 2016, at 1:00 p.m. is vacated, and the federal government is ORDERED to record a standing document by way of April 5, 2016.
