As per Law360, US Magistrate Judge Thomas S. Hixson has claimed that the legal document by Apple “limits the length of a deposition, rather than barring it altogether.”
“[In] these three antitrust actions,” the court says, as per Law360, “the facts of the case go way beyond the historical facts of what happened when. There is really no one like Apple’s CEO who can testify about how Apple views competition in these various markets that are core to its business model.”
Apple reportedly wanted to show how Samsung distributes Fortnite, but the US judge didn’t allow that request too.
Epic Games had earlier dragged Apple to court after the Cupertino-based tech giant removed Fortnite from the App Store due to an alleged violation of its policies. Google was next to be sued. Epic Games is strongly opposed to the 30% fee charged by both the companies from the app developers on their respective app stores.
