Apple antitrust suit over e-books set for NY trial

NEW YORK (AP) - The government and Apple Inc. are set to square off over accusations of price-fixing e-books.

The Justice Department sued Apple last year, claiming that the computer innovator had conspired with a major book publisher to force Amazon.com to raise its prices for electronic books. It says comments from former Apple CEO Steve Jobs help prove their case.

Lawyers for Cupertino, Calif.-based Apple argue the allegations are based on "faulty assumptions and unfounded conclusions."

A judge will begin hearing the case Monday at a nonjury trial in federal court in Manhattan.

Five publishers named in the suit have settled. The judge has urged Apple to do the same.
