Epic Games today kicked off its appeal of the judge’s decision in the Epic v. Apple lawsuit, filing an opening brief with the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.
In the appeal, Epic Games asked whether Judge Yvonne Gonzalez-Rogers had made mistakes with some of her findings, including that Apple is not a monopolist.
Both Apple and Epic Games have decided to appeal the original ruling as neither company was satisfied with the outcome. Epic Games wanted the court to force Apple to support third-party App Stores, which did not happen.
Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney said that the ruling wasn’t a “win for developers or for consumers,” and Epic Games confirmed that it planned to appeal shortly after the verdict was delivered.
