US to appeals court: Reject Apple's challenge to antitrust monitor imposed in NY e-book case

NEW YORK, N.Y. - The Justice Department wants a federal appeals court to let a monitor continue reviewing Apple's antitrust policies over the company's objections.

Government lawyers filed papers Friday with the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan. They said Apple Inc.'s request to stop the work that a monitor began in the fall because he's "conducting a roving investigation" is without merit.

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.
