10th Cir. denies interlocutory appeal on forced drive decryption in Fricosu

In previous posts (here and here), I have discussed the case of United States v. Fricosu where a federal judge has ordered the defendant to provide a decrypted copy of her hard drive to federal investigators. Just after the order, Fricosu claimed that she may have forgotten the encryption key. The deadline for providing the copy is later this month.

Meanwhile, she has appealed to the Tenth Circuit on the issue. The appellate court dismissed the appeal, finding they have no jurisdiction due to a lack of a final decision from the district court.
