State Seeking Damages from Apple

Attorney General Lisa Madigan said Illinois is seeking to recover damages from Apple after a federal judge said the company violated anti-trust laws.

This week, a district court judge in New York ruled Apple conspired with book publishers to raise electronic book prices significantly in the spring of 2010.

Madigan said Apple and the publishers forced book buyers to pay millions more than they would have otherwise.

33 states and territories will try to recover damages.

Apple says it did nothing wrong, and will appeal the ruling.
