What’s happening in the US over the weekend

The US Department of Justice has filed a civil lawsuit against Apple, alleging that the tech giant conspired to deprive the company of billions of dollars in revenue.

The Justice Department accuses Apple of conspiring to avoid paying royalties and profits on more than 10 million copies of the original Apple iPad, in violation of US tax laws.

The complaint also accuses Apple’s lawyers of failing to disclose that the iPad is a work of art, citing Apple’s own guidelines.

“The iPad has become the symbol of innovation and the future of commerce, and Apple is a prime beneficiary of this fact,” said Eric Goldman, senior attorney for the Justice Department’s antitrust division.

The lawsuit was filed in the Eastern District of Virginia and is seeking unspecified damages.

Apple has denied any wrongdoing.

The iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C were released on Friday.

It was the first time Apple has been forced to make a formal complaint against the company.

Earlier this month, the Justice and Treasury departments jointly issued subpoenas demanding Apple’s records on how it has been distributing its devices in the United States.

The subpoena, issued by the Department of Treasury, asks Apple to provide information on how much it has sold in the past five years, including sales of iPhones, iPads, Macs and other mobile devices.

In response, Apple said it was working on a plan to provide more information to Congress, which is expected to release a report in the next week.
