    The string of high-end store robberies continued in California Wednesday with a last-minute smash-and-grab operation at Apple and Nordstrom stores while shopping continued for the holidays. “Thieves rushed into a Southern California Nordstrom store the night before Thanksgiving and ran off with pricey goods in the latest in a string of organized retail thefts,” the Associated Press reported.

    Apple has agreed to pay $29.9 million to store workers in California after the Supreme Court ruled Friday against the tech giant's policy of forcing its employees to submit to security bag checks, despite them being off the clock. The ruling comes following an eight-year legal battle, when a group of Apple employees sued their employer back in 2013, arguing the company was violating California state law by not paying them for their time spent undergoing the security checks, according to court documents. The employees also had to let their Apple products be inspected and verified during the searches.  'This is a significant, non-reversionary settlement reached after nearly eight years of hard-fought litigation,' the plaintiffs' attorney Lee Shalov, wrote in the proposed settlement. 'If approved, this will be the largest reported settlement in a security search case in California,' Shalov added prior to Friday's ruling.   The lawsuit specifically covers employees who work at California's 52 Apple stores.

    After a three-hour federal court hearing, a California judge has recommended a jury trial in July 2021 to resolve a case between Apple and Epic Games, the maker of the popular game Fortnite. Epic Games sued Apple on Aug. 13 after the tech giant pulled the mobile version of Fortnite off of its App Store. The game was pulled after Epic introduced a workaround option to purchase V-Bucks, Fortnite's in-app currency, directly from Epic rather than completing a transaction through the App Store. Apple receives a 30% cut from all purchases completed on its platform. Epic accused Apple of violating antitrust laws by forcing app developers to use Apple's payment systems for in-game content. "[Apple] harms app developers’ relationship with their customers by inserting itself as a mandatory middleman in every in-app transaction," the court filing states. "Consumers … are forced to pay higher prices and suffer inferior customer service from Apple, the unwelcome middleman." On Sept. 8, Apple filed a countersuit against Epic, accusing the company of a breach of contract and seeking monetary damages to...
    Apple has to pay store employees in California for the time they spend waiting for their bags to be checked by security officers, an appeals court ruled this week. The US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued the ruling Wednesday, which reverses a summary judgment order in Apple’s favor, as first reported by Law.com. The ongoing case started in 2015 when a group of Apple retail workers in California filed a class action suit arguing that under state law, they should be paid if they wait for bag searches, which the company requires but did not consider on-the-job time. California’s Supreme Court ruled in February that state law required Apple to pay employees for the time they spent waiting for a manager or security officer to search their bags — as is company policy to deter theft — after their shifts had ended but before they could leave the store. The workers said some days they ended up waiting for 45 minutes for a manager or security officer to be available to do the searches. ...
