We reported earlier this month on plans for Apple CEO Steve Jobs to submit to questioning in a consumer antitrust lawsuit focusing on Apple’s decision to shut rival companies’ music files out of iPods back in 2004. Now the company has asked US District Judge James Ware to throw out the case. “Apple’s view is that iPods work better when consumers use the iTunes jukebox rather than third party software that can cause corruption or other problems,” said attorney Robert Mittelstaedt at a hearing yesterday, although he admitted that Apple had not confirmed this with ‘scientific tests’. However, the move isn’t an attempt to wiggle Jobs out of testifying – according to Business Week, he met with plaintiff lawyers on 12 April to give his deposition. Source: Business Week
