Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery said today his office would no longer provide iPhones to prosecutors and other employees after Apple Inc.’s refusal to help the FBI unlock the iPhone of one of the San Bernardino terrorists.

“Apple’s refusal to cooperate with a legitimate law enforcement investigation to unlock a phone used by terrorists puts Apple on the side of terrorists instead of on the side of public safety,” Montgomery, a Republican, said in a statement. “Positioning their refusal to cooperate as having anything to do with privacy interests is a corporate PR stunt and ignores the Fourth Amendment protections afforded by our Constitution.”
