H&B Client Lavabit Files Brief in Apple Case


Harvey & Binnall is proud to be working with Lavabit LLC again in its brief supporting Apple in its dispute with the FBI. The tech-company gained notoriety in 2013 when it shuttered its service rather than give the Government unfettered access to the accounts of its 400,000 + customers. The brief in the Apple case argues that the FBI’s proposal violates the All Writs Act, the First Amendment (freedom of speech), and the Thirteenth Amendment (involuntary servitude).

Apple published the brief on its website here.

Lavabit’s press release on the brief is here.
