That's the core point you're making, and I have no opinion on it.

The latter. They believed they already had the precedents they needed;
otherwise they would've never brought the lawsuit.

How would I know? What's public record is this: they hire a *lot* of
forensics nerds from the private sector and have long-standing
relationships with major forensics firms like Kyrus, Cellebrite, and
others. I suspect it's fair to conclude they need support from the
private sector for a lot of their operations.

My apologies to Johan. :) Many years ago I was an exchange student in
Hildesheim, Germany. My knowledge of German has atrophied considerably
in the last twenty years, but I suspect some lingering instinct there
compelled me to add the second 'n'.
