 Epic and apple agreed that it would not go to a jury trial by July


Epic and apple have met and discussed, and both agree that epics claim and Apples counterclaim should be heard by the court, not by a jury, it said. Accordingly, with the consent of epic, apple hereby withdraws its request for a jury trial under Rule 38 (d) of the federal rules of civil procedure. The parties hereby request that this case (including related claims and counterclaims) be tried in accordance with the timetable decided by the court. In its counterclaim against epicgames, apple originally asked for a jury trial, but withdrew the request after the supervising court judge told the companies that she did not want to try two separate cases. At the end of a virtual hearing in the Northern District Court of California on Monday morning, judge Rogers told epic and Apples legal team that while a case like this could be handled by one or more judges, it might be more appropriate for ordinary people to be involved as a jury, and the verdict is less likely to be overturned by a higher court.
