Court-Appointed Monitor in eBook Antitrust Case Makes Serious Money


Do you want to make more money? You can, if you become a monitor that works to ensure that Apple is in compliance with antitrust law after that case in which Apple was accused of trying to artificially raise eBook prices.

Just how much does such a person make? Well, the court-appointed one cost Apple $1,100 an hour. Apple obviously isn’t very happy with that. Especially when the Cupertino company received the invoice for $138,432, which according to TUAW, is more than what top lawyers at the best legal firms across the US charge.

The report does go on to say that much of this charge is part of an administrative fee (15%) and for hiring other attorneys to help him with his work.

Maybe I should start studying law, but judging by my writing, I have a long way to go.
