The Justice Department has been ready to take Apple to task over these recent allegations of e-book price fixing, and now a court date has been set: Apple will have to face the music almost a year from now, on June 3, 2013. Apple, Macmillan and the Penguin Group are the targets in the case, and while each of them has denied any formal price-fixing in the past, the court will do a little formal digging into those claims.

A year is quite a long ways away, but stay tuned and we’ll see exactly what case the Justice Department plans to lay out against Apple and the other publishing companies then.
