ELECTRONIC BOOKS-SETTLEMENT
West Virginia consumers could receive $1.7M more from Apple in e-book price-fixing settlement

Reported by: Associated Press

CHARLESTON, W.Va.


West Virginia consumers who might have overpaid for e-books could receive up to $1.7 million from Apple in a proposed national settlement.

Attorney General Patrick Morrisey's office announced the total Thursday. Customers who purchased electronic books from some publishers from April 2010 to May 2012 would benefit.

The settlement needs approval from the U.S. District Court in New York's Southern District. It also depends on Apple's court appeal.

The lawsuit was filed by 33 states against Apple Inc. and five of the nation's six largest e-book publishers. The publishers settled claims against them for a total $166 million payment.

In March, Morrisey announced state consumers would get $700,000 from that partial settlement.

Apple went to trial, lost a 2013 judgment in New York's Southern District and appealed.
