Court grants oral argument in forced-decryption appeal [updated]

Orin Kerr posted here today at Volokh Conspiracy that a Third Circuit panel of Judges Jordan, Vanaskie, and Nygaard will hear oral argument September 7 in an appeal involving Fifth Amendment self-incrimination limits on ordering a criminal suspect to decrypt his computer hard drives.

Back in June, Kerr had this thorough and interesting post explaining the core legal issue and expressing his hope that the Third Circuit rejects the Eleventh Circuit’s Fifth Amendment “foregone conclusion” analysis.

Update: here is news coverage of the oral argument by Chris Palmer in the Philadelphia Inquirer.
