Epic Games’ Antitrust Suit Has New Judge

 |  August 19, 2020

Apple and Epic’s court case has already been reassigned to a new judge.

Reported by Foss Patents, Epic Games’ antitrust lawsuit against Apple has been reassigned to United States District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers. The judge is already presiding over to other class action lawsuits against Apple that are similar to what Epic is suing the company over.

“Approximately 18 hours ago, a clerk’s notice already mentioned the possibility of Epic Games’ antitrust action against Apple over its App Store terms and policies being reassigned to Oakland-based United States District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers. The following related case order just came down, and this means Epic Games v. Apple travels over the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge” the report read.

Because of the change, Epic will now have to resubmit its motion for a temporary restraining order that would block Apple from removing Epic Games’ access to the App Store and development tools.
