Re: Orin Kerr

Orin Kerr discussed a case that asks whether or not suspects have a legal obligation to unlock their smartphones for investigators. "In light of the lower court disagreement, the U.S. Supreme Court is likely to take on this issue in the next few years," said Kerr. "In the meantime, state and lower federal courts are grappling with it."
