"As I also noted in the Boucher posts, the problem the government faces in a case like this is that if it gives the suspect immunity to get the encryption key or passwords, it can't use the key or the passwords or any evidence derived from them, i.e., any evidence they find when they access the encrypted or password-protected computer or computer media, against that person. So if the government doesn't appeal this court's ruling or if the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit affirms that ruling, it means Kirschner doesn't have to worry about the government using evidence that's in his computer to prosecute him for new crimes . . . unless, of course, the government can somehow bypass his password protection.
