Apple has failed to block a compliance monitor designated to it after a judge found the company guilty of fixing the prices of ebooks.
Apple has lost its battle to block an antitrust compliance monitor aimed at ensuring that it does not fix ebook prices.
According to Reuters, US District Judge Denise Cote denied Apple’s request to remove the order. Apple intends to appeal the denial.
Apple has taken issue with the compliance monitor, former US Justice Department inspector general Michael Bromwich. The company argued against Bromwich’s interviewing of company leaders and his $1,100 per hour fee, but Cote said that Apple is not in a position to define how Bromwich carries out the role.
