Court: Apple must comply with antitrust monitor

Updated

A federal appeals court ruled on Monday that court-appointed monitor Michael Bromwich can continue to supervise Apple’s antitrust policies, Reuters reports. Apple was given a temporary reprieve from monitor Bromwich in late January, but Bromwich will once more be able to perform his duties, which are limited to assessing compliance policies and disseminating those policies. “Today’s ruling makes abundantly clear that Apple must now cooperate with the court-appointed monitor,” Department of Justice spokeswoman Gina Talamona said. The monitor was originally appointed to examine Apple after the company’s involvement in fixing e-book prices. Apple is still seeking a broader appeal to remove the monitor completely.
