Apple petitions U.S. Supreme Court to throw out ebook antitrust decision
In a case that seems to just keep on chugging along, Apple has petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn an appellate court decision against the company in the government's iBooks price fixing lawsuit. From Reuters:
The original lawsuit claimed that Apple had conspired with book publishers to manipulate pricing for ebooks. The original judgement charged former Justice Department Inspector General Michael Bromwich with monitoring the company's activities, but monitoring ceased earlier this month. If the original ruling is upheld, Apple will be on the hook for paying out $450 million to consumers.
