She waited until the penultimate day of a three-week trial to share her feelings.
FORTUNE -- U.S. District Judge Denise Cote, who played her cards close to the chest throughout the proceedings of the Department of Justice's antitrust case against Apple (AAPL), opened up a bit on Wednesday.
It started with the declaration of her feelings for her iPad, and ended with something that could be more material to the outcome of MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 19, 2013 1:52 PM ET
As a witness, Theresa Horner was everything Apple could hope for.
FORTUNE -- Barnes & Noble (BKS), the last of the nationwide brick-and-morter bookstore chains, plays only a bit part in the Department of Justice's antitrust case against Apple (AAPL). It was one of the "other retailers" that, alongside Amazon (AMZN), was forced to change its business model when Apple joined the cabal of book publishers conspiring to raise the price MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 19, 2013 7:07 AM ET
Shouldn't there be a law against beating a piece of evidence to death?
FORTUNE -- What started as a small "gotcha" moment last week in the cross examination of a mid-level Apple (AAPL) executive grew into a federal case -- literally -- on Monday, the ninth day of testimony in U.S.A. v. Apple.
The latest McGuffin in the Department of Justice's antitrust case against Apple is an e-mail signed by Steve Jobs and addressed MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 18, 2013 8:36 AM ET
The DOJ will rest its case. Apple will present its defense. Summations on Thursday.

Having sailed through a grilling Thursday by the government's lawyer, the star witness of U.S.A. v. Apple will complete the friendly MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 17, 2013 5:47 AM ET
That's when Apple and Macmillan hatched a plot to sandbag Amazon, says the DOJ.
FORTUNE -- In its effort to prove that Apple (AAPL) "knowingly participated in and facilitated a conspiracy to raise prices of e-books" -- to use the judge's own words -- the Department of Justice has spent an inordinate amount of time cross-examining witnesses in the Apple e-book trial about a dinner that took place in Manhattan on MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 16, 2013 8:36 AM ET
If the government couldn't nail Eddy Cue -- and it didn't -- how's it going to win?
FORTUNE -- The Department of Justice spent a little over three hours Thursday cross-examining Apple senior vice president Eddy Cue -- the alleged "ringmaster" of an illegal conspiracy to raise the price of e-books -- and when it was over it wasn't clear whether the government had let its last best chance slip through MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 14, 2013 7:30 AM ET
Hammered by the DOJ on the effect of higher e-book prices on consumers.
FORTUNE -- With Eddy Cue finally where the Department of Justice has long wanted to put him -- in the witness chair in federal court facing civil antitrust charges -- the government seemed more interested in shaming him for raising the prices of e-books than in parsing the details of the laws he is alleged to have broken.
According MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 13, 2013 1:45 PM ET
Cue was at the center of what the DOJ calls an illegal scheme to fix the price of e-books.
FORTUNE -- Did Apple (AAPL) take advantage of the turmoil in the digital book market in late 2009 to negotiate favorable deals with five of the six biggest book publishers? Or was it, in fact, the "ringmaster" of an illegal conspiracy that reshaped the industry, forced Amazon (AMZN) and other retailers to MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 13, 2013 7:20 AM ET
E-mail evidence the government introduced on Tuesday could backfire on Thursday.
FORTUNE -- Plaintiff's Exhibit 55, which U.S. attorney Dan McCuaig introduced with a flourish at the end of the day Tuesday, was almost too good to be true.
It was a Jan. 14, 2010 e-mail from Steve Jobs himself, and not only did it seem to support the central theory of the government's antitrust case against Apple (AAPL), but it suggested for the MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 13, 2013 5:00 AM ET
The old joke among Apple insiders was that the ship leaked from the top.
FORTUNE -- Dan McCuaig, one of the Department of Justice attorneys in U.S.A. v. Apple, waited until the last hour of the sixth day of the e-book antitrust trial to pull out his smoking gun.
The witness, Keith Moerer, head of Apple's (AAPL) iBookstore, had been on the stand for four hours. He had testified repeatedly that Apple never asked MOREPhilip Elmer-DeWitt - Jun 12, 2013 7:15 AM ET
