[NEW YORK] A federal judge in Brooklyn, New York denied the US government's motion to compel Apple Inc to provide access into an iPhone used in a drug case, according to court documents released on Monday.

The government sought access to the phone in October, months before a judge in California ordered Apple to give the government access to the phone used by one of the shooters in the San Bernardino, California attacks.
