U.S. Appeals Court Upholds Apple E-Book Settlement

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld Apple's $450 million e-book settlement. Reuters noted that the Supreme Court will, as early as Friday, decide whether or not it will hear the case.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan rejected a challenge by e-books purchaser John Bradley to the fairness, reasonableness and adequacy of Apple's class-action antitrust settlement with consumers and 33 state attorneys general. U.S. District Judge Denise Cote in Manhattan had approved the settlement in November 2014.
