Minnesota joins DOJ in Apple antitrust lawsuit

Minnesota is one of 16 states that has joined the Department of Justice to file antitrust lawsuit against Apple.

The complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey, alleges that Apple holds a monopoly over the smartphone market in violation of Section 2 of the Sherman Act.

"Smartphones are essential devices in this day and age, but they don't need to be as expensive or restrictive as they currently are," Attorney General Keith Ellison said in a statement. "Apple's exclusionary conduct makes it hard or impossible for people to switch to lower-cost iPhone alternatives, and harder for app developers to innovate and compete."
