Apple is seeking to halt the decision by Judge Rogers to make App Store Changes on December 9 with a filing with the U.S. Court of Appeals
Apple Inc. is asking a higher court to halt a judge’s decision that will force changes to its App Store while a legal fight with Epic Games Inc. continues. Lawyers for the company filed Tuesday with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, seeking action by Dec. 8, according to BNN Bloomberg.
Earlier this month, U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzales Rogers rejected Apple’s request to put on hold her ruling allowing developers to steer customers to payment methods outside the App Store, an overhaul the judge ordered in September that could cost the tech giant a few billion dollars annually. The company said at that time it would appeal to the higher court.
According to the filing: "Given the injunction’s effective date of Dec. 9, Apple seeks immediate entry of an administrative stay that would expire 30 days after the Court’s ruling on the stay motion."
