Apple-Epic Games lawsuit: US Justice Department asks to join Tussle scheduled for October: Report

The US Department of Justice reportedly wants to have a say in Apple’s antitrust issue with Epic Games. The lawsuit is due to be heard on October 21. The appeals court has given justice the right to send a representative to the hearing that will take place next month. In 2021, a California judge had convicted Epic Games, which had argued that Apple acts as a monopoly in its App Store for digital goods or services.

According to a recent report from Reuters, Justice Department officials have asked to join Fortnite maker Epic Games’ pleas in appeal against Apple next month. The struggle can be heard on October 21.

Epic Games had sued Apple in 2020, alleging that the American tech giant had violated antitrust laws with its App Store rules. The rules required developers to pay Apple commissions up to 30 percent of in-app purchases.

As previously mentioned, a California judge had ruled Epic Games in 2021, with Apple usually coming out victorious, allowing the commissions to stand.

As of now, Apple can still require its payment systems to be used for in-app transactions. Both sides are attractive.
