    Default Judge Hints at Incriminating Evidence Against Apple


    With the trial related to Apple's alleged eBook price-fixing scheme inching closer to a start, presiding Judge Denise Cote said today that the U.S Department of Justice has an excellent chance of proving that Apple was involved in the controversial - and purportedly illegal - scheme.

    In an unusual move before a trial, a federal judge expressed a tentative view that the U.S. Justice Department will be able to show evidence that Apple Inc engaged in a conspiracy with publishers to increase e-book prices.
    Comments documented today by Reuters indicate that Judge Cote believes Apple will be found to have participated in this lingering saga, which has already resulted in tens of millions of dollars in settlement-related fees for publishers accused of being party to the conspiracy.

    "I believe that the government will be able to show at trial direct evidence that Apple knowingly participated in and facilitated a conspiracy to raise prices of e-books, and that the circumstantial evidence in this case, including the terms of the agreements, will confirm that," Cote said.

    Although the U.S. Department of Justice didn't comment on the matter, Orin Snyder, a lawyer for Apple, did, saying that: "We strongly disagree with the court's preliminary statements about the case today."

    The trial is scheduled to commence June 3rd.

    I hope department of justice be very careful of this case and do not end in mistrial of some sort.
    Also the judgement should be paid directly to Apple's competition since they are the ones who was hurt from sales they lost. This way it is no longer slap on the wrist and no corporation would ever try something like this again.

    The fines need to be hefty, because most corporations continue illegal acts because they still have plenty of profits left even after paying the fines.

    This sounds like the judge has no business trying this case Apples lawyers should seek a new trial and a judge.

    So many apple diehards on the modmyi forum lol. Look if they are truthfully guilty of such accusations then they should at the very least be fined. And the people saying the judge is biased are also biased by taking up apples side. So regardless of your opinion this thing will sort itself out.
