Apple Appeal Is Dismissed in eBook Case

doj304Apple’s appeal in the ongoing eBook antitrust case has been rejected by the court.

The New York Times has the latest: “A federal appellate court on Monday rejected Apple’s request to stay the monitor, Michael R. Bromwich, a Washington lawyer, from doing any more work pending the outcome of its challenge to a judge’s earlier order appointing the monitor in the first place. But a one-page ruling from the three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit did put some limits on how far Mr. Bromwich can go in demanding documents and interviews with Apple employees.”

Apple could pay up to $840 million in antitrust claims as a punishment for being found guilty of colluding with publishers to fix the prices of eBooks. In June, U.S. district judge Denise Cote found Apple guilty of the antitrust claims filed by the U.S. Justice Department. She also determined that 33 states were eligible to join in the suit.
