Apple’s antitrust monitor is leaving for good

After a rocky two years at Apple, antitrust monitor Michael Bromwich is saying goodbye to the company for good, Bloomberg reports. Bromwich issued his final report on Apple’s e-book operations last week, noting the company’s strides toward compliance while still complaining that Apple had been less than forthcoming and often made his job difficult. In a letter to the federal judge who found Apple guilty of price fixing in 2013, the U.S. Justice Department recommended the monitoring be brought to an end, saying Apple has “implemented meaningful antitrust policies, procedures, and training programs that were obviously lacking at the time Apple participated in and facilitated the horizontal price-fixing conspiracy found by this court.” Apple said it is committed to fulfilling all the obligations the court laid out, including training, audits and antitrust risk assessment.
