Search warrant documents in an investigation of the possible theft
of an Apple Inc. iPhone prototype will be made public, a
California judge ruled.
Judge Clifford V. Cretan in Redwood City today ruled against the
San Mateo County District Attorney’s office, which argued that
unsealing the documents will reveal identities of potential
witnesses and compromise the investigation. Media organizations
argued they should have access to the documents based on
constitutionally protected free-speech rights.
