Court Denies Two Apple Counterclaims vs Epic

Courthouse News reports that U.S. District Court Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers has thrown out two of the counterclaims Apple filed in their legal battle against Epic Games over Epic's claim that Apple's 30% commission on App Store purchases is monopolistic (thanks Ant). The decision says Apple has "no basis" for demanding punitive damages and clears Epic of "intentional interference with prospective economic advantage and conversion." They provide a copy of the court's decision and kindly spare us from the legalese by providing a summary in English. Here's a bit:
On Tuesday, Gonzalez Rogers told Apple’s attorney Anna Casey the tech giant “is on the losing side of this.”

“I don’t believe you have a tort action here. I said it before and I’m saying it today,” Gonzalez Rogers said.

As for Apple’s intentional interference claim, Gonzalez Rogers told Casey, “You can’t just say it — you actually have to have facts that support it, and you don’t.”

The judge also said Apple failed to show ownership or right to possession as required for a conversion claim.

Personal attacks? Who in person did I attack? It was a general judgemnent. How hilariously pathetic.

I thought this is the new American way for the last 4 years... just take a look at POTUS, he did everything exactly this way for 4 years and apparently there are almost 50% of the American still support him.

Unfortunately the court of public opinion is not a court of law. So long as they actually get Trump out of the White House without starting a civil war he's got an assload of legal trouble heading his way. I suspect it's the major part of why he's refusing to concede and trying everything possible to stay in power just short a military coup - and he's trying to fix that by stacking the Pentagon with exteme-right loyalists.

Shame there has not been a single adult Republican in the last 4 years to say the same thing to that loser they call a POTUS.

I mean seems like they could have had evidence of people leaving after epic was kicked out, like they started a revolt. But I guess nothing happened like that?
