Federal Court Serves Apple Shit Bromwich

Joe Palazzolo, reporting for the WSJ:

A federal appeals court rejected Apple Inc.’s efforts to rid itself of a corporate monitor appointed after a judge found the company liable for conspiring to raise the price of e-books.

Michael Bromwich, a former Justice Department inspector general, began assessing Apple’s antitrust compliance policies six days after he was appointed in October 2013 by U.S. District Judge Denise Cote, who held the company liable for a price-fixing conspiracy in a July decision that same year.

Since then, the technology company has been trying to shake him off, arguing that he began work prematurely and exceeded the scope of his mandate, and that his $1,000-an-hour fees were exorbitant.
