ELECTRONIC BOOKS-ANTITRUST LAWSUIT
US to appeals court: Reject Apple's challenge to antitrust monitor imposed in NY e-book case
Reported by: Associated Press

The Justice Department wants a federal appeals court to let a monitor continue reviewing Apple's antitrust policies over the company's objections.
The monitor was appointed by a judge who concluded last summer that Apple had colluded with book publishers in 2010 to raise electronic book prices.
An appeals court judge on Tuesday suspended the two-year appointment of a monitor until a three-judge panel of the court can decide if the monitor's work should continue. Arguments are scheduled for Feb. 4.
