When a federal judge told Bob Kohn to whittle a 25-page amicus brief to just five pages, Kohn came up with an unusual solution. He submitted a short graphic novel instead.
Kohn is an outspoken critic of litigation by the Justice Department accusing Apple and book publishers of conspiring to raise the prices of electronic books. T he department said that Apple, when it was about to debut its iPad, pushed publishers to raise e-book prices and to forbid discounting. The move hurt Amazon, which has been using electronic books as loss leaders to sell the Kindle e-book reader.
Apple has said the lawsuit is “fundamentally flawed” and denied being part of any conspiracy. Two publishers are fighting the lawsuit alongside Apple, while Hachette Book Group, HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster have agreed to settle.
In a 25-page proposed brief last month, Kohn sought to persuade U.S. District Judge Denise Cote that the settlement is not in the public interest. (Apple, represented by O’Melveny & Myers and Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, has also urged the court not to finalize the settlement.) On Aug. 29, Cote told Kohn to cut his brief back to five pages and gave him until Sept. 4 to do it.
