Apple’s 30% Commission case from App Store Sales announced that consumers can continue to sue.
A different appeals court ruled that consumers could open cases against Apple to monopolize the market for application sale. The new judge, Brett Kavanaugh, rejected the California-based company’s defense.
In his speech, Kavanaugh, who was appointed by Donald Trump, said Apple had received a 30% commission as a retailer on every application sale. Judge, in his speech, said the case may continue.
Judge Neil Gorsuch, who was also elected by Trump, stated that the decision of the Supreme Court in the case against consumers is not approved by federal law.
The Apple side said it was a situation between developers and consumers and that iPhone user would not be able to sue Apple under antitrust laws. At the end of the case, the commission rate that Apple receives from application developers may decrease.
