The families argued Apple's arguments are misplaced because the FBI has a valid warrant, and "one does not enjoy the privacy to commit a crime".
The families also claimed Apple "routinely modifies its systems" to comply with Chinese government directives.
The family action came as two groups of leading technology and internet giants took legal action in support of Apple in the dispute over access to shooter Rizwan Farook's phone.
More than a dozen leading internet companies, including Twitter, Ebay, Linkedin and Airbnb, have taken legal action in support of Apple in its phone encryption battle with the FBI.

A separate group led by Google, Facebook, Microsoft and several other Internet and technology companies are also understood to be due to file a joint legal brief asking a judge to support Apple.

The FBI is investigating a threat against the Obama family following the hack of US magazine Newsweek's Twitter account, the White House has said.
Hackers calling themselves "CyberCaliphate" hacked American magazine Newsweek's Twitter account, posting threatening messages towards President Obama and his family.
The image at the top of Newsweek's Twitter account showed a masked man under the words "Je Suis IS", a reference to Islamic State and the deadly attack at French newspaper Charlie Hebdo.
In one message, the hackers said: "Bloody Valentine's Day #MichelleObama! We're watching you, you girls and your husband! #CyberCaliphate."
A group, also claiming to be the Cyber Caliphate, took responsibility for hacking the US Central Command's social media accounts last month.
Newsweek removed the "CyberCaliphate" banner and tweets and regained control of the account within 14 minutes, the magazine later said.
