On Tuesday, Apple filed a request to Denise Cote, the US District Judge, to replace Michael Bromwich, the antitrust monitor, for his inappropriate work ethics and being partial.

According to CNET, Apple accuses the monitor being involved in a conspiracy with other publishers setting the price of e-books.

In November, Apple stated that Bromwich was charging excessive fees, taking away $138,432 only in the first two weeks.

Earlier, Bromwich accused Apple for not cooperating with him properly, and preventing him from interviewing the company’s top officials.

However, if Apple is able to provide strong evidence about the allegations, the antitrust compliance monitor will indeed be removed from the position.
