  • Court Temporarily Halts Compliance Monitor's Oversight While Appeal Awaits a Ruling

    The US Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit recently issued an order that temporarily halts compliance monitor Michael Bromwich’s oversight while the appeal awaits a ruling. The order reads the following regarding the matter:

    It is hereby ordered that the motion for a stay pending appeal is referred to a three-judge motions panel and shall be heard as soon as possible. It is further ordered that an administrative stay of the district court's order is granted until the motion for stay pending appeal is determined by the motions panel.
    The order was handed down by Circuit Judge Raymond J. Lohier, Jr. and it comes five days after Apple notified the court that it planned to appeal Judge Denise Cote’s imposition of an external compliance monitor. The Cupertino California company elevated the case to the appellate court after Judge Cote refused to remove Bromwich herself, saying that the company failed to show “that the Monitor should be disqualified or that Apple will suffer irreparable harm.”

    For those of you who didn’t already know, Apple has repeatedly expressed dissatisfaction with the appointment of a monitor in general and Bromwich in particular. The company has called Bromwich’s oversight “inquisitorial” and says the “investigation significantly interferes with the ability of Apple’s managers to lead the company.”

    As a result of the order, the DoJ has until January 24 to respond to the stay. We’ll have to wait and see what move is made next.
