The court case regarding this incident is in the hands of the US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. The outcome of this case will set precedents for the technology industry in general. Considering how the email account belongs to a resident of Ireland, the FBI has no legal jurisdiction in that country. Nor does the US DOJ, for that matter.
