RBGG’s Jeff Bornstein, a former federal prosecutor and veteran white collar criminal defense practitioner, provided background and commentary for The Recorder on February 17, 2016 in an article on the controversy arising from the San Bernardino terrorist attacks, “Raising Stakes in Encryption Debate, Apple Vows to Fight Order to Unlock iPhone.” (subscription required)

According to The Recorder: “Former federal prosecutor Jeffrey Bornstein, who is not involved in the case, said that government appears to be asking the court to compel Apple to develop a brand new tool to defeat the device’s security features. Bornstein, now a partner at Rosen Bien Galvan & Grunfeld, said that forcing the company to deploy its own resources and expertise ‘is different than forcing a company to turn something over that already exists.’  If Apple were to create the tool needed in this case, it could likely be used in every other case where law enforcement asks for similar assistance, he added.”
