Pepper v. Apple Inc., 14-15000

In an an antitrust complaint alleging that Apple monopolized and attempted to monopolize the market for iPhone apps, the district court's dismissal for lack of statutory standing is reversed where plaintiffs were direct purchasers of iPhone apps from Apple, rather than the app developers, and therefore had standing to sue under Illinois Brick Co. v. Illinois, 431 U.S. 720 (1977).
