Judge Allows Class Action eBook Suit Against Apple

apple-logo-248x300A group of consumers have been given permission to bring an antitrust class action suit against Apple for allegedly conspiring with publishers to fix eBook prices has been granted permission to sue Apple.

Reuters has the story: “U.S. District Judge Denise Cote said the plaintiffs had ‘more than met their burden’ to allow them to sue as a group. She rejected Apple’s contentions that the claims were too different from each other, or that some plaintiffs were not harmed because some e-book prices fell. ‘This is a paradigmatic antitrust class action,’ wrote Cote, who has scheduled a trial later this year to determine damages, which could reach hundreds of millions of dollars.”

In June, U.S. district judge Denise Cote found Apple guilty of colluding with publishers to fix the prices of eBooks in a case brought by the U.S. Justice Department. According to reports, Apple could pay up to $840 million in antitrust claims as a punishment for being found guilty. Apple has already begun dispensing refunds to consumers in select states.

Apple Has Appealed eBook Judgement

apple-logo-248x300Apple has filed papers claiming the antitrust judgement against the company is out of date and will hurt consumers if it stands.

ABC News has the scoop: “Apple’s papers filed Tuesday refuted the antitrust finding, and said its entrance into the e-book market ‘kick-started competition in a highly concentrated market, delivering higher output, lower price levels, and accelerated innovation.’ Apple had also filed a request that the monitor’s work be suspended until the appeals court decides whether he was correctly appointed. A three-judge panel of the appeals court ruled earlier this month that he can once again take up his work but under the limits decided upon by Cote.”

Earlier this month, Apple’s previous appeal was rejected by the court. 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.

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.”
