NEW YORK (AP) — A Justice Department lawyer says the government has proven that Apple Inc. conspired with publishers in 2010 to raise electronic book prices.
The final arguments Thursday by attorney Mark Ryan were aimed at winning a court ruling against Apple in a New York civil antitrust case.
Apple attorney Orin Snyder had told Judge Denise Cote (KOHT') earlier that she would set a "dangerous precedent" if she concluded that Apple manipulated e-book prices as it entered the market.
The three-week trial stemmed from an antitrust lawsuit that the government brought last year against Apple and major publishers. The government has reached settlements with five publishers.
The trial has featured testimony from executives for Apple, publishers and Amazon.com.
Cote is expected to rule this year.
