The Justice Departments efforts to force Apple AAPL +2.35% to help it hack into the iPhone that belonged to one of the San Bernardino shooters may be over, but if recent history is any indication, it wont be long before lawyers for the government are back in front of a judge with a similar request.

.

The American Civil Liberties Union today published details of 63 cases where the government has cited the All Writs Act to force Apple or Google GOOGL +1.67% to help it gain access to data contained on locked smartphones and tablets. The list includes cases involving drugs, identity theft and counterfeiting, among others. The disclosure comes one day after a judge threw out an order to compel Apple to help investigators in the San Bernardino case by writing software to disable a basic security function on the iPhone 5c. The order was vacated after lawyers for the Justice Department told the court Mondaythat they had what they needed from the phone and no longer needed Apples help.

.

We just thought transparency is so important, that we needed to see what these cases were, to see how the arguments evolved. It was unbelievable to us that this issue had been litigated  for the most part  outside of public view, said Matthew Segal, legal director of the ACLU of Massachusetts. For weeks, the group dug up any available information on cases using public databases, as the collective focus of privacy and security researchers, civil liberties groups, Silicon Valley and the media centered on the San Bernardino case.

.

Apple disclosed earlier this month a dozen other cases it was compelled to help with under the All Writs Act. Its unclear how many of those are included in the ACLUs list, since Apple did not release case names or docket numbers. Justice Department lawyers said previously that Apple had helped investigators unlock phones at least 70 times since 2008, prompting the ACLU to gather more information on the cases.

ACLU attorneys identified the cases by combing through court records with key words and phrases that appeared in previously identified filings. While no two requests made under the All Writs Act are exactly alike, Segal said there were enough similarities among them to come up with search terms to find others.

.

The ACLU also filed a Freedom of Information Act request with the Justice Department in December, seeking additional information on every case involving the All Writs Act. The Justice Department informed ACLU that they were gathering responsive documents, but as of today none have been produced, said Riana Pfefferkorn, a fellow at the Stanford Center for Internet and Society, which joined the ACLU in the request. Pfefferkorn said the San Bernardino case should be an indicator of the governments ability to hack into devices in other instances.
