Appeals court issues temporary stay of Apple antitrust monitorship pending hearing the appeal
January 21, 2014 | 4:39 pm
The Second Circuit Court of Appeals just issued a temporary stay (PDF) of the antitrust monitorship over Apple pending further review by a three-judge panel. As I understand it, this isn’t really a full victory for Apple so much as it is a standard part of the process of appeal; they’re staying the monitorship only until they can hear the appeal in full. At that point they will decide whether it gets a permanent stay.
The Department of Justice has until the end of the day Friday the 21st to file its opposition to a temporary stay pending appeal. We’ll see what it comes up with.
