How to Become a Bounty Hunter



FBI Off the Hook on Releasing Name of Vendor Who Unlocked iPhone in San Bernardino Case

IPhone 6

A federal judge has decided that 100 percent transparency isn’t necessary when it comes to the FBI and the San Bernardino shooting.

The FBI does not have to reveal the identity of a vendor that helped it unlock the iPhone of one of the shooters in the 2015 San Bernardino terror attack, or the price it paid for the vendor’s services, a federal judge ruled, the Los Angeles Times reports.

In a summary judgment issued Saturday, U.S. District Judge Tanya Chutkan in the District of Columbia wrote that releasing the vendor’s name could be reasonably expect  “to cause harm to national security interests by limiting the FBI’s present and future ability to gain access to suspected terrorists’ phones.”

She also noted that the disclosure of the vendor’s identity would “risk disclosure of a law enforcement technique and create a reasonably expected risk of circumvention of the law.”
