Case History

In 2019, a class action lawsuit was filed alleging Apple unlawfully monopolized, or attempted to monopolize, the U.S. market for iOS app and in-app-product distribution services in violation of state and federal laws. At this time, the class has entered into a settlement with Apple for $100 million. This settlement is currently pending final approval. The funds (less any expenses and fees) will be distributed if and when the Court grants final approval of the settlement and a claims process is completed.
