Fending Off FBI, Apple Prepares For Court

Apple is expected to respond to the FBI in court tomorrow, defending its decision not to help the bureau unlock the iPhone of San Bernadino shooter Syed Rizwan Farook.

FBI director James Comey has called the dispute “hardest question I’ve seen in government,” according to the Associated Press. But CEO Tim Cook tells ABC’s “World News Tonight with David Muir,” that the FBI was asking Apple to develop “the software equivalent of cancer.”

Here & Now’s Jeremy Hobson unpacks the legal arguments in this ongoing story with Re/code’s Dawn Chmielewski.
