It's all up to Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers now.
Today was the last day of testimony in the Epic v. Apple trial, a major part of the lawsuit brought against Apple by the Fortnite game maker. Now that the trial has adjourned, Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers will retire to her chambers and, after pouring through the lawsuit and trial documents, make a ruling in the case.
As reported by 9to5Mac, the final day of testimony consisted of Rogers questioning attorneys from both Apple and Epic.
As far as when Rogers will hand down her ruling, that is still unknown. The judge joked that it may be August 13, a reference to the date that Epic initially rolled out its hotfix to the Fortnite app that caused it to be booted from the App Store, igniting the entire lawsuit. However, Rogers did not provide an actual expectation on when a decision will be made.
