Apple and Epic Games appeal case in October 2022 will get an August visitor as the United States Department of Justice (DoJ) antitrust officials have requested to enter an oral argument pertaining to the case.
The case is the same one that has seen the game maker take on the iPhone makers for months now. Although, a ruling in December 2021 handed Apple victory, the game studio appealed the ruling claiming that Judge Gonzales Roberts had erred in her judgment.
Even Apple, who won, is not a fan of the complete ruling. While it had liked the fact that the court found it not guilty of any wrong doing, the ruling that it could not tell users directly about alternative payment options did not go down well with the company.
According to their statement, they plan to explain how the ruling could affect their anti-trust jobs.
“The United States believes that its participation at oral argument would be helpful to the court, especially in explaining how the errors (in antitrust law interpretation) could significantly harm antitrust enforcement beyond the specific context of this case,” the DoJ said.
It is difficult to imagine that what the antitrust officials have to say would help Apple’s case. However, it could help the judge see all the angle that the ruling needs to cover.
