The federal judge overseeing Epic Games Inc.’s antitrust lawsuit against Apple Inc. said a jury trial might be a better option to resolve the case.

U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers in Oakland, California did not order a jury trial in the matter but said at a hearing Monday that jurors might be better-equipped to evaluate the major issues. These include Apple’s security concerns and developers’ complaints about Apple’s tight control over payments made through its App Store, which generate commissions for the tech giant.
