    From Computerworld:

    Magistrate Judge James Orenstein ruled that the All Writs Act isn't sufficient to order Apple to extract data from a drug dealer's iPhone.

    A federal judge has denied a government motion to force Apple to unlock an iPhone—but it’s not in the San Bernardino, Calif. case. Still, the ruling could have implications for Apple’s current battle with the FBI over San Bernardino shooter Syed Farook’s iPhone 5c.

    In the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York, Magistrate Judge James Orenstein ruled on Monday that the All Writs Act is being applied overly broadly by the government.

    Judge Orenstein's ruling is worth reading in light of the higher profile San Bernardino case -- particularly since the arguments are similar in both cases.
