Tucker v. Apple Computer is a class action suit alleging monopolistic practices in breach of the Sherman Anti-trust act and California state fair competition laws, according to a report filed by Apple with the SEC on Friday. It’s only one of a number of new suits Apple is currently arguing in court, but at issue is the practice of tying the iTunes music store to the iPod.
Thanks to Apple’s choice of Saturday night before New Years to file its late quarterly report (wonder why?), I’m now figuring out how to retrieve records from the Northern California District Court when I should be out eating tapas. Tapas! Thanks a lot, Steve. Whatever you’ve got up your sleeve for MacWorld, it better be good.
