Kavanaugh Stands Up for Americans Against Big Tech
By Paul Bradford| May 15th, 2019

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh ruled with the majority on Monday that iPhone users can sue Apple Inc. over its app prices. Kavanaugh rejected Apple’s argument that consumers could not challenge the company’s policy of taking a 30 percent commission from its apps and refusing to let consumers purchase iPhone apps from third parties.

“It is undisputed that the iPhone owners bought the apps directly from Apple,” Kavanaugh argued.

While this is a great start, we may need new legislation to prevent monopolies like Apple and Google from discriminating against consumers and small businesses that use their platforms.

What’s most surprising is that Kavanaugh sided with the four liberal justices in his decision. The other four conservative justices dissented from his opinion.
