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.

There’s really not more to report than that right now. Even news sources like the New York Times simply follow it up with a recap of Judge Cote’s decision of a few days ago.

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.
