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.
