» ‘Apple files formal notice of appeal on external compliance monitor’


Apple has officially filed for an appeal of US District Judge Denise Cote’s recent decision, which denied both Apple’s request to suspend an antitrust external compliance monitor (ECM) while an appeal of the main judgement is considered, and a request to disqualify the current appointee, Judge Cote’s personal friend and former DOJ Inspector General Michael Bromwich.

Who knows nothing about antitrust matters and must employ a helper monkey attorney to explain them to him to the tune of an additional $1,000 an hour.

Seriously, I’ve tried to be even-handed about this whole thing but this has gotten kind of ridiculous.
