Steve Jobs’ biographer Walter Isaacson has been dropped from the upcoming Apple ebooks price-fixing case, according to Paid Content. Class action lawyers had originally subpoenaed Isaacson to submit his notes from interviews with Jobs regarding the iBookstore. However, Isaacson refused to do so, noting a New York law that allows a journalist to shield their sources. But new court documents filed last week reveal both parties have agreed to drop Isaacson — and his notes — from the case.
The lawsuit alleges Apple — and Steve Jobs in particular — colluded with Apple to inflate ebook prices. In September of last year Apple agreed to stop e-book price fixing in Europe. The e-book price fixing case in the US commences June 3.
