Apple feud tenses up with court-appointed monitor

A feud between Apple and a lawyer appointed by a federal court judge to monitor the company's e-book pricing reform has grown bitter

Apple is facing strong opposition from the U.S. in its bid to block an antitrust monitor appointed in an e-books pricing case from interviewing top executives including Apple CEO Tim Cook and board member Al Gore.

Apple’s monitor, Michael Bromwich, said in court documents that Apple's characterization of his team's activities as a "roving investigation bear no relation to the activities we have attempted to conduct.” In an 11-page document, Bromwich described repeated alleged efforts by Apple to block interviews between him and senior executives, as well as the company's failure to turn over documents.
