Judge rejects Apple request to remove court-appointed monitor

A district judge claimed Apple failed to prove the removal would be in the public’s best interest

The ongoing fight between Apple and court-appointed monitor Michael Bromwich will continue after one district judge ruled that Bromwich should not be removed from his post.

U.S. District Judge Denise Cote ruled on Jan. 16 that Apple “failed to show” it is in the “the public interest” to remove Bromwich from his post overseeing Apple’s e-book pricing regulations. Cote also denied an Apple request to delay regulatory oversight, saying the governmental regulations posed no “irreparable harm” to the company.
