Judge Dismiss a Lawsuit Files Against Amazon, Random House, Simon & Schuster and HarperCollins

A judge has dismissed a lawsuit that The Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza in suburban Albany, NY filed against Amazon and the nation's six publishers over the sale of e-books. The lawsuit alleged Amazon and the publishers, including Random House, Simon & Schuster, and HarperCollins, had created a monopoly over the way e-books are sold. The 19-page ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Jed S. Rakoff called the anti-trust claims 'speculative' and based on 'hypothetical discussions or agreements'. The ruling was issued Dec. 6.
