California Attorney General Rob Bonta contends that courts do not need to find antitrust breaches in determining violations of the state’s Unfair Competition Law, according to an amicus brief filed Thursday in the appeal of the antitrust showdown between Epic Games Inc. and Apple Inc.

In the filing before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, the California Attorney General’s Office said the state statute is intended to be broader and more flexible than antitrust laws and provide cumulative remedies.
