As the U.S. Justice Department continues its case against book publishers over e-books price fixing, Apple Inc. CEO, Tim Cook, may be called to testify in front of a U.S. District Court Judge. A brief issued by U.S. District Denise Cote mentions Cook’s possible testimony, including a conference call scheduled for March 13.

The Justice Department pursued a group of book publishers for conspiracy to raise prices for e-books. Apple is the lone remaining defendant in the anti-trust case, five other parties have already settled with the U.S. Justice Department.

I suppose a settlement on Apple’s part would admit guilt, but then again it’s hard to dispute if other parties have all settled to terms.
