“Apple Inc. will appeal a ruling by a U.S. judge rejecting the company’s bid to block a monitor she appointed in an electronic-books price-fixing case, according to a court filing,” Patricia Hurtado reports for Bloomberg.
“U.S. District Judge Denise Cote in Manhattan this week denied Apple’s request to stop the court-appointed monitor, Michael Bromwich, from questioning executives,” Hurtado reports. “In a written opinion yesterday, she said Apple failed to show that it was in the public interest to delay her ruling.”
“Apple, based in Cupertino, California, said in a court filing yesterday that it intends to appeal ‘all of the court’s rulings adverse to Apple in its Jan. 16, 2014, order,'” Hurtado reports. “Cote appointed Bromwich, a former U.S. Justice Department inspector general, in October to oversee Apple’s compliance with terms of her ruling in a price-fixing case brought by the U.S. government.”
