As the Case of the Locked iPhone moves on to the next phase, Apple has posted a list of supporting amicus–or “friends of the court”–briefs to its website. Included in the list so far are the ACLU, a relative of the San Bernardino victims, an official of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner of Human Rights, the App Association, and Access Now.
Conspicuously absent at present are any other technology companies, though it’s still early. The next stage in the case is a hearing to be held before Magistrate Judge Sheri Pym on March 22 in Riverside, California, the day after Apple’s rumored to hold its next press event.
