Epic, Apple argue over lack of discovery in ‘Fortnite’ pretrial period

A jointly-produced filing between Apple and Epic in its ongoing “Fortnite” courtroom saga reveals issues with discovery on both sides ahead of a case management conference, with each claiming the other isn’t providing the required documentation.

In the Joint Case Management Statement filed on Monday, in advance of the case management conference scheduled for October 19, Epic and Apple both have issues with how the other company is handling the discovery portion of the lawsuits. Each company accuses the other of being uncooperative in different ways.

In Epic’s portion of the statement, it accuses Apple of failing to provide all of the documentation it needs, namely that Apple’s list of custodians that documents are supplied about does not include two prominent figures in Apple’s history. Of the six people listed, Epic spotted that none of them are co-founder and late CEO Steve Jobs and current CEO Tim Cook.

Furthermore, Epic also claims Apple “repeatedly relied” on the two men during the two previous motion hearings. However, Apple countered by saying it didn’t rely on them, rather that it mentioned the two twice, referencing Tim Cook’s statement to the US House of Representatives Judiciary Committee and “an AppleInsider article quoting Steve Jobs.”

Apple also claims it has already provided Epic “with the 3.6 million documents” produced by Apple in its developer class action and consumer class action suits. Epic believes these documents should have been provided sooner.

On Epic’s side, it has already made “an initial production of more than 16,000 pages form the files of Timothy Sweeney,” the CEO of Epic. Apple counters by claiming Epic may have “cherry-picked” the documents that may “omit a significant amount of relevant materials.”

Apple also claims Epic received a third-party discovery request before it formed its lawsuit

Poshmark Holds PoshFest During IPO Silent Period

Holding a public event during a time of mandated silence by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission can make for an awkward affair. Nonetheless, social resale platform Poshmark pressed on to hold its eighth annual conference for its community of sellers on Friday and Saturday.

The goal of PoshFest is to energize the community of “seller stylists” and showcase upcoming and recently launched features. But as the company dished on its latest tools, along the way it also wound up providing notable context for its upcoming initial public offering.

More from WWD

As founder and chief executive officer Manish Chandra made clear, the company is in a state of constant development. And its moves over the past year have positioned the platform as a blend of some of the top retail trends of the moment. Beyond the company’s core premise of socially driven resale, it moved into short videos and doubled down on reselling, sustainability and intelligence-driven personalization and recommendations.

Poshmark may be a nine-year-old company, but it’s as if someone stirred together the current trends and just baked them to produce this platform.

A recent report from CB Insights may put a finer point on it. The “State of Retail Tech H1’20” examined investment momentum in the first half of the year, and found that investors are particularly keen on social commerce start-ups and resale platforms, among other areas, including businesses that can answer the elevated need for data connections across stores and online.

Now consider Poshmark’s offerings, as discussed at PoshFest: Its new “Just Picked” feature uses a machine learning, artificial intelligence engine to scan listings and match them to specific shoppers for personalized collections. This spring, the company introduced short video-driven Posh Stories, so sellers can demo products and engage people in new ways — whether that’s
