U.S. court rejects challenge brought against Apple’s ebook settlement


Some court cases involving Apple seem to stretch on for quite awhile, and the one focusing on ebook price fixing is no different.

Back in August of 2014, Apple earned preliminary approval for the $450 settlement it would pay out. Later in that same year, that total was given its final approval from the courts, but a challenge was later brought against Apple by an Oklahoma resident by the name of John Bradley. Bradley believed that U.S. District Judge Denise Cote should have waited until the appeal was decided upon before making the final decision determining if the settlement amount was fair to consumers.

Unfortunately for Bradley, three appeals court judges ruled against his challenge.

As it stands right now, Apple is still asking the United States Supreme Court to overturn the guilty decision that was levied against the Cupertino-based company. That process began back in October of last year, and there’s no telling how much longer it will continue.
