Judge could reject Apple’s settlement in anti-poaching suit

Judge Lucy Koh

Judge Lucy Koh is considering Michael Devine’s request.

U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh may reject a plea put forward by Apple, Google, and two other companies following a lawsuit which accused Apple of participating in anti-poaching practices.

After an appeal refusal, the companies ended up settling for the comparatively small tiny of $324.5 million.
