Apple is petitioning a higher court to stay the previous ruling that mandates changes to the App Store as a result of the legal battle with Epic Games.
Apple is making another attempt to delay implementing changes to its App Store while waiting for the appeals hearing.
Apple’s argument remains the same. The tech-giant claims that integrating new App Store affordances is a monumental task that would take “months” to accomplish and be detrimental to everyone involved.
Apple hopes that it can delay the injunction 30 days.
“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,” according to the filing seen by Bloomberg.
Without a stay, Apple said that “the App Store will have to be reconfigured — to the detriment of consumers, developers, and Apple itself.”
On November 9, U.S. District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers rejected Apple’s first motion to stay court orders that would force the company to repeal App Store anti-steering rules prohibiting developers from integrating purchase buttons and links within their apps.
The request was denied, with the judge saying that Apple had sufficient time since the ruling to get the job done.

Shows how dumb the judge is. No way Apple can reconfigure the App Store that fast. Plus there will be plenty of lawsuits against Apple for changing it. If Apple is forced to open it up I’m filing a lawsuit against Apple for damaging a secure system, putting my devices at risk.

Cool, who are you represented by? Where will you be filing your suit?

Looking forward to Apple getting smacked down again.

It is hard to tell if that happens.  The law in question is a vague state law and Federal appeals courts tend to go with ‘retain the status quo’. It all depends on how well Apple explains the situation and how fast the court acts.  A 30 day extension (getting Apple past the somewhat chaotic holiday season) could be in the cards.  I don’t see much further down the line.

As for lawsuits against Apple for changing things – that is DOA because Apple would be compiling with a court ruling. I seriously doubt any judge would tolerate any such lawsuit and likely give a summary judgment so fast it would make the plaintiffs’ heads spin like a top.  If they were really ticked off at the plaintiffs’ they could have them pay Apple’s legal fees on top of everything else.
