Apple vs. Epic in Court

The legal battle between Apple and Epic over Fortnite royalties had a court hearing today, though the actual trial won't begin for real until July 2021. Reuter's summarizes today's action (thanks Hypothermia), saying the judge feels this should be put before a jury:
A federal judge in California on Monday urged Apple Inc and "Fortnite" creator Epic Games to take their antitrust dispute before a jury, saying the higher courts would be less likely to overturn the result.

“I know I'm just a stepping stone for all of you,” District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers said during a virtual hearing from Oakland, California.

Epic Games sued Apple in August, alleging the iPhone maker's 30% commission on purchases made through Apple's App Store was anticompetitive. The judge's comments came during a hearing to decide whether to keep in place an emergency order saying Apple could remove "Fortnite" from the App Store but could not harm Epic's developer tool business.
