Felczer v. Apple Tentative Decision Confirmed Regarding the Courts’ Statement of Decision
The Honorable Eddie C. Sturgeon confirmed the tentative ruling finding against the Class, taking the opposite position of the jury. Basically, the jury made a finding of fact that Apple’s scheduling practices were unlawful, and the Judge made a finding of fact that Apple’s scheduling practices were lawful. The Judge based his ruling on the rationale that there were different years involved and the Court did not have to accept the jury’s view of the facts “carte blanche.”
But, the case still goes on. Judgment has not been entered yet, and then post-trial motions have yet to be heard.
