Sweeney must be grumpy because he was defeated in appeals court... all previous rulings in Epic v. Apple will stand except the part about Epic paying Apple's attorney fees (still TBD, but shifted from "nope" to "maybe").
I doubt his complaint today was related to the mixed decision.
"Apple prevailed at the 9th Circuit Court. Though the court upheld the ruling that Apple's restraints have "a substantial anticompetitive effect that harms consumers", they found we didn't prove our Sherman Act case.
Fortunately, the court's positive decision rejecting Apple's anti-steering provisions frees iOS developers to send consumers to the web to do business with them directly there. We're working on next steps."
