EFF argues 5th Ammendment Violated in Colorado Ruling.

In this instance I suspect that the EFF and I disagree on this. The judgment points out that the defendant has been granted immunity from prosecution for the content or information acquired as a result of the decryption of the hard-drive. The act of self-incrimination in this particular instance seems to have been avoided. Moreover the judge did not rule that in all instances this was true, just this particular one, and that the 5th Ammendment may still apply to decryption in other cases where such immunity is not offered.
