Hagens Berman managing partner Steve Berman is the lead counsel in the class action suit against Apple and publishers. He had this statement: “We look forward to uncovering additional evidence in the discovery phase of this litigation … We litigated this case because we strongly believe that consumers were harmed by Apple and the publishers’ tactics and we will not settle without an effective plan to repay consumers for their losses.”

The Department of Justice also sued publishers and Apple, but HarperCollins, Hachette and Simon & Schuster have already settled that suit.
