Chris Sagers, C|M|LAWs James A. Thomas Distinguished Professor of Law, was widely quoted in press coverage of the historic verdict in the Justice Department’s antitrust suit against computer maker Apple.  The government showed, to the trial court’s satisfaction, that Apple orchestrated a price-fixing conspiracy among five major publishers of eBooks for sale in its iBookstore.  Sagers was quoted in the Wall Street Journal’s online technology blog Digits [http://blogs.wsj.com/digits/2013/07/10/how-apple-ruling-could-affect-itunes-group/], in two stories in Publisher’s Weekly (one here [http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/digital/content-and-e-books/article/58166-apple-loses-judge-finds-price-fixing-in-e-book-case.html] and one here [http://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/digital/retailing/article/58240-with-the-verdict-in-what-s-next-for-apple.html]), a Bloomberg News story [http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-07-11/amazon-seen-gaining-advantage-with-apple-s-e-book-defeat.html] that was also carried in the Kansas City Star [http://www.kansascity.com/2013/07/11/4340821/other-retailers-could-gain-an.html], a story in the Global Competition Review [http://globalcompetitionreview.com/news/article/33793/apple-e-books-agreements-violated-us-antitrust-law/], and a featured interview in Competition Policy International [http://archive.constantcontact.com/fs193/1111629548505/archive/1114105687648.html].

Some of his comments were also picked up in stories in Crain’s Cleveland Business [http://www.crainscleveland.com/article/20130715/BLOGS03/130719888], Cleveland radio station FM 107.9 [http://zhiphopcleveland.com/4057322/cleveland-state-law-prof-hits-wall-street-in-i-tunes-debate-inventingthefuture/], and in several industry and financial blogs (see, e.g., here [http://kindleworld.blogspot.com/2013/07/doj-apple-lawsuit-clues-on-last-day-of.html], here [http://wallstcheatsheet.com/stocks/apples-e-book-loss-is-making-amazon-very-happy.html/?a=viewall], and here [http://wraltechwire.com/advantage-amazon-after-apple-s-e-book-court-defeat/12655021/]).
