Statement by District Attorney Mike Ramos regarding Apple’s decision not to comply with court order
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – From day one of this unprecedented terrorist attack, as District Attorney, I have focused on working alongside our law and justice partners to protect and care for our victims. Our victims deserve a voice in federal court given Apple's decision not to comply with a court order. These are victims who were murdered, terrorized, and in some cases, continue to live in fear. It is our responsibility to assist them. We will continue to speak to them, inform them of the progress of the matter, offer them services, and opportunity to be heard. We owe it to them to do everything we can to make sure justice is served.
