IT'S OVER (For Now):
FBI/DOJ Vacates Court Date Against Apple


This evening, MacNN published that:

Tomorrow's iPhone 5c court hearing vacated by judge after request
A few hours ago, the US Department of Justice filed to vacate tomorrow's hearing, as it has apparently found another method to access the San Bernardino shooter's work-owned iPhone 5c. The filing says that on Sunday, an "outside party demonstrated to the FBI a possible method for unlocking Farook's iPhone" which "should eliminate the need for the assistance from Apple Inc. ("Apple") set forth in the All Writs Act Order in this case." . . . 

The government is planning to perform more testing on the iPhone 5c to determine suitability of the proposed procedure, and report back to the courts on April 5 with progress, which may yet result in Apple having to appear and defend its position.
DOJ Motion To Vacate Hearing

So, see you again April 5th! (?)

It is so easy at this point to speculate what is REALLY going on at the FBI and DOJ. But let's sit tight and take this forced break in the proceedings. I expect full well that there will be more attempts to wreck the First, Fourth and Fifth Amendments to the US Constitution ahead.
