Apple has been granted an “administrative stay” on a court order appointing a monitor to prevent antitrust behavior at the company, temporarily removing the monitor from his duties, Reuters reports. The monitor was appointed in a September injunction issued against Apple for its involvement in fixing e-book prices. Since then, Apple has complained that monitor Michael Bromwich has been too intrusive, and is charging inflated fees for his services. The company is still pursuing an appeal of the original decision; a three-judge panel will decide whether Apple will be granted a stay pending the results of the appeal.
