Re: Who cares if it leaks?

The "second request" mentioned appears likely, in fact, to be an earlier one, where the judge suggested Apple oppose it and sent them back a couple of times to get them to revise their brief so he could deny the order, which he did. That one was in various states of play from October, 2015 on.

All these cases (by now several hundred) have to do with executing legally obtained search warrant for a phone the police have in their possession.
