could be an example of government over-reach. apple is going up against the federal government, in a case that could have huge legal implications. apple c-e-o tim cook says he will fight a court order requiring his company to help the f-b-i recover data from an i-phone used by one of the san bernardino terrorists. cooper says "..we can't even access that phone right now. and, it really makes no sense whatsoever." the ruling requires apple to help the f- b-i disable the security feature which erases data from the iphone after too many attempts to unlock it... with the feature disabled, the feds can try as many times as they need to unlock the phone. but cook says he's fighting the order over privacy concerns... arguing it has implications far beyond the legal case at hand. terrell says "..volunteer if apple wants to? yes. having the government, having big brother tell you you must help us? that's why we have a constitution." cell phone locks
problematic for criminal investigators over the past few years... and some law enforcement officials are hoping this ruling will make it easier for them to get court orders... to help bypass those locks. turnbull says "..i've had numerous homicide investigations, where i couldn't get into the physical phones." but it can be a tough sell - with some saying nobody should be able to override the privacy features they pay for. mos says "..i don't even let my friends get into it, so, why would i let the police?" mos says "..maybe the police are looking into more than what they say they're trying to find." (on-cam tag) investigators tell fox that the iphone is essential to the case and possible terror connections overseas. apple now has five business days... to formally respond to the ruling. in los angeles, adam housley, fox news. private information is carried on nearly 900 million i-phones sold worldwide. president obama and the first lady will visit the supreme court on friday to pay their respects as justice antonin scalia lies in repose. however, the president will not attend the funeral on saturday. while white house spokesman josh earnest says he
what the president's plans are that day-- he says vice president joe biden and his wife jill biden will attend scalia's funeral. it's being held at the basilica of the national shrine of the immaculate conception in washington. scalia died on saturday at age 79. he joined the court in 1986 and was its longest- serving justice. senator dean heller says president obama should nominate a replacement for justice scalia. that makes him the first republican senator to do so.... although he doesn't expect a nominee to be approved by the g-o-p led senate. nevada's other senator... harry reid... says he expects senate republicans to eventually drop their opposition to holding confirmation hearings on the president's pending pick for the supreme court. the las vegas strip is usually packed with traffic. so has the time come to close it off to cars and trucks for good? the idea was floated once again... during a county commission meeting tuesday. with the valley expected to see an increase in both residents and
making the strip a pedestrians-only mall could help ease congestion in the tourist corridor. however.... critics say shifting traffic to other streets - just isn't feasible. "the two streets along the back, whether its koval or frank sinatra drive or industrial, dean martin, simply can't handle that kind of trafffic that we're talking about. it's often times used for deliveries, employees and what not, and at that rate it gets very congested at times and causes a huge traffic." some resorts on the strip... like the bellagio.... only have entrances on the strip... and would likely fight the idea. right now... there is no formal vote expected - or official proposal in the works for closing off the strip. wynn resorts is moving forward with an expansive retail complex on the strip. the company said today it will be called "wynn plaza" and debut in the fall of 2017. it will have two entrances directly off the strip... with its own valet service.... doubling the amount of retail space at the "wynn" and "encore".
