I apologize; I meant no disrespect.

The particular case I cited was just one of many times the government
used the All Writs Act to compel a manufacturer to bypass security.  The
FBI's petition with respect to Apple attempted to use the All Writs Act
in a similar way.  I don't know if they used the specific case I cited
as precedent; they had many options to choose from.
