Todd M. Lander Shares Opinion with Daily Journal on Government’s Withdrawal of Case Against Apple

Todd M. Lander was quoted in today’s Daily Journal article, “Government dropping case against Apple over iPhone: US Attorney says they have alternative way to unlock phone.”

Specializing in complex litigation and intellectual property, Mr. Lander states “Apple argued the government had failed to demonstrate it needed the company’s assistance, and federal officials’ withdrawal could suggest shortcomings in, or at least concerns about, their arguments.”
