Judge OKs Class Action Suit Against Apple For E-Book Price Fixing 88

An anonymous reader writes "Reuters reports: 'A federal judge in New York granted class certification on Friday to a group of consumers who sued Apple Inc for conspiring with five major publishers to fix e-book prices in violation of antitrust law....The plaintiffs are seeking more than $800 million in damages.' The trial will probably be in July or September. The judge who granted class certification, Denise Cote, ruled in 2013 that Apple was guilty of colluding with other publishers to raise the price of e-books and to force to do the same."

    After legal fees it will be $0.32. You will need to send a 35 page class member certification form letter to the plaintiff's attorney via registered mail. It must be notarized and include a printed invoice for each applicable etext.

    This should be thrown out of court. Apple is too big to fine. It would shake consumer confidence. If anything I think they need a bailout so that they do not have to resort to these unfair and unethical practices. I think that also Apple should be declared a official State to offer sovereign immunity to protect against any further lawsuits.. I also think they should rescind any legislature that allows for oversight of apple's finances and tax havens. Please vote for me I'm running for Congress 2k16. I please donate towards my campaign, I will guarantee a ROI of 20:1 for all contributions above 1mil.
