E. John Steren Quoted in “What Apple V. Pepper Means for App Prices”


E. John Steren, a Member of the Firm in the Health Care & Life Sciences and Litigation & Business Disputes practices, in the Washington, DC, office was quoted in POLITICO’s Morning eHealth, in “What Apple V. Pepper Means for App Prices.”

Following is an excerpt:

Epstein Becker Green’s John Steren tells Morning eHealth that justices’ main challenge is assessing whether consumers have the right to sue Apple for damages, even though the apps themselves may have been developed by third parties. Based on the Supreme Court’s discussion Monday, Steren says it appears that most justices think the consumer does have that right. To safeguard against future lawsuits and having to pay damages, he said, Apple might raise app prices across the board.
