Court May Delay Apple Trial on E-Book Damages

U.S. appeals court will consider Apple Inc's request to put off a July trial to determine how much the iPad maker must pay in damages to customers in more than two dozen states over e-book price fixing. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York said in a brief order that a three-judge panel will hear Apple's argument on why the trial should be put on hold while it appeals a judge's ruling that it conspired with five publishers to raise e-book prices.
