Apple slams Goodwin Procter partner's fees in e-book case
Apple has objected to the fees charged by a Goodwin Procter partner who was in October appointed by a New York court to monitor the company's competition practices. According to court papers, Goodwin white collar partner Michael Bromwich billed Apple almost $140,000 (£85,000) in the first two weeks of his instruction, which follows a ruling in July that Apple conspired with five publishers to fix e-book prices. In a stinging critique, Apple said Bromwich's "personal financial interest is for as broad and lengthy an investigation as possible", and that he had refused to propose any sort of budget.
