A federal appeals court on Thursday rejected Apple Inc's bid to disqualify an antitrust compliance monitor who was appointed after the company was found liable for conspiring with publishers to raise the prices of e-books. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York said a lower court judge did not abuse her discretion in rejecting Apple's bid to disqualify Michael Bromwich as monitor. Bromwich, a lawyer, was installed in October 2013 by U.S. District Judge Denise Cote, three months after she found Apple had played a "central role" in a conspiracy with publishers to raise e-book prices, the subject of litigation brought by the U.S. government and more than 30 U.S. states.
