Epic Games asks court to stop Apple’s ‘retaliation’ against Fortnite suit

61 Views

In a court motion filed Friday, September 4, Epic Games requested an injunction restoring Fortnite to the iOS App Store. Epic calls the filing an action to “stop Apple’s retaliation against Epic for daring to challenge its unlawful restrictions while our antitrust case proceeds.” It’s the latest legal maneuver in what will surely be a long, drawn out confrontation between two powerful tech giants—what one might call a Goliath vs. Much Larger Goliath situation. 

This motion for a preliminary injunction follows the partial granting of a previous request for a temporary restraining order against Apple requesting, to the layman, much the same thing. That motion was partially successful in that it kept Apple from terminating Epic’s access to development tools used to maintain the Unreal Engine on iOS. This new motion—in very simplified terms—makes the case that as Epic Games’ anti-monopoly case against Apple is very strong and likely to succeed, the court should grant Epic’s request now instead of later.
