The 'esoteric' law being used to fight Apple

In a statement to customers on Tuesday, Apple's chief executive, Tim Cook, vehemently opposed the FBI's efforts to unlock the iPhone 5C belonging to San Bernardino, California, shooter, Syed Rizwan Farook.

Calling the move "chilling," Cook explained why he believes the All Writs Act of 1789 — the statute the Department of Justice is citing to obtain information in this case — sets a "dangerous precedent."
