The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that consumers could forge ahead with a lawsuit against Apple over the way it manages its App Store, The Washington Post reports. The 5-4 decision allows device owners to proceed with a case that alleges Apple has acted as a monopoly by requiring iPhone and iPad users to download apps only from its portal while taking a cut of some sales made through the store. Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who sided with the court's liberal justices in the 5-4 decision, authored the opinion in the case.
