Legal access is a special case -- what is the law (and practice) in any

US law, a subpoena for keys would probably be upheld by the courts.  I
believe that British law explicitly mandates key disclosure.  And of
course, there's always rubber hose cryptanalysis in jurisdictions where
that's acceptable.

That assumes the police or other agencies know who operated the server. In practice, some TOR servers are rented by hosting sites to parties they don't know or think they know but really don't.
