As the iPhone unlocking controversy roars on, a number of Apple engineers have said they may decide not to cooperate with law enforcement.

Apple employees who might be called on to help the FBI are already considering their actions should Apple lose the case. This is according to interviews conducted by the New York Times with half a dozen people involved in the development of mobile products and security at Apple.

Per the interviews, some said they they may balk at the work, while others may even quit their premium jobs rather than undermine the security of the software they have already created, according to more than a half-dozen current and former Apple employees.
