Apple Seeks to Halt E-Books Monitor Before Appeals Panel

Apple Inc., facing as much as $840 million in state and consumer antitrust claims tied to price-fixing in the electronic-book market, asked an appeals court to halt oversight by a court-appointed compliance monitor.

Apple made an emergency request today before a three-judge panel in New York, seeking a longer delay in the supervision by the monitor, Michael Bromwich. Apple, the world’s most valuable technology company, accuses Bromwich of taking inappropriate actions beyond the scope of his authority and interfering with the way it does business.
