Apple Inc. was victorious after a federal jury decided yesterday that the company “didn’t compete unfairly when it sold music players and songs with copy-protection software that was incompatible with rival devices and music from competing online stores.” Plaintiffs and attorneys were seeking as much as $1 billion in the class action lawsuit.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled this week, in a 5-4 decision, that a “defendant removing a class action lawsuit to federal court under the Class Action Fairness Act of 2005 does not need to include actual evidence in establishing the required amount in controversy.” The case involved a class action originally filed in Kansas state court, which was removed to U.S. District Court after the defendant invoked jurisdiction under the Class Action Fairness Act.
