Apple Computer Inc.

Bottini & Bottini is lead counsel for Plaintiff in Klein v. Apple Computer, Case No. 5:14-cv-03634-EJD, a shareholder derivative litigation pending in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California (Judge Davila, presiding). The complaint seeks damages caused to Apple when Steve Jobs and Apple's other directors adopted and implemented unlawful "anti-poaching" agreements with other companies in Silicon Valley. Pursuant to the agreements, Apple and its competitors agreed to not solicit and hire employees from each other. The United States Department of Justice later determined Apple's anti-poaching agreements to be unlawful per se restraints of trade under the federal antitrust laws and forced Apple to discontinue the agreements and not enter into further anti-competitive agreements in the future.
