Judge says Apple conspired to raise prices on e-books
NEW YORK, July 10 (Reuters) - A federal judge on Wednesday ruled that Apple Inc conspired to raise the retail prices of e-books, and said a trial for damages will follow.
The decision by U.S. District Judge Denise Cote in Manhattan is a victory for the U.S. government and various states, which the judge said are entitled to injunctive relief.
The publishers have already settled with the federal government on e-book pricing.
Cote ruled after a non-jury trial that ended on June 20.
