A jointly-produced filing between Apple and Epic in its ongoing “Fortnite” courtroom saga reveals issues with discovery on both sides ahead of a case management conference, with each claiming the other isn’t providing the required documentation.
In the Joint Case Management Statement filed on Monday, in advance of the case management conference scheduled for October 19, Epic and Apple both have issues with how the other company is handling the discovery portion of the lawsuits. Each company accuses the other of being uncooperative in different ways.
In Epic’s portion of the statement, it accuses Apple of failing to provide all of the documentation it needs, namely that Apple’s list of custodians that documents are supplied about does not include two prominent figures in Apple’s history. Of the six people listed, Epic spotted that none of them are co-founder and late CEO Steve Jobs and current CEO Tim Cook.
