Jobs biographer Walter Isaacson needn't testify in e-book case
Steve Jobs' biographer Walter Isaacson has been dropped from the upcoming Apple e-books price-fixing case, according to Paid Content. Class-action lawyers had originally subpoenaed Isaacson to submit his notes from interviews with Jobs regarding the iBookstore. However, Isaacson refused to do so, noting a New York law that allows a journalist to shield their sources. But new court documents filed last week reveal both parties have agreed to drop Isaacson -- and his notes -- from the case.
The lawsuit alleges Apple -- and Jobs in particular -- colluded with publishers to inflate e-book prices. In September of last year Apple agreed to stop e-book price fixing in Europe. The e-book price fixing case in the US commences June 3.
