*Background:*
On Tuesday, a federal judge in Riverside, California, ordered
<https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/2714001-SB-Shooter-Order-Compelling-Apple-Asst-iPhone.html>
Apple
to help the government unlock and decrypt the iPhone 5C used by Syed Rizwan
Farook, one of the alleged San Bernardino attackers.

Specifically, the government has compelled a technology company to 'assist'
law enforcement by designing custom software that would disable security
features on the phone to allow FBI access - and the ramifications of such a
precedent could be tremendous.

Technology, social justice and legal partners have come together to deliver
a phone briefing on this ruling that helps social justice activists,
technologists and others better understand what has happened, what it
means, what will happen next, and what we can do.
