U.S. Magistrate Judge Nathanael Cousins in San Jose, California granted sanctions against Apple starting December 16th. The company has until December 29th to turn over the documents or face steeper fines.
Apple says it has already produced more than 2.6 million documents by the December 15th deadline and that any dispute Qualcomm wanted to raise was premature.
“We have already produced millions of documents for this case and are working hard to deliver the millions more which have been requested in an unprecedented time frame,” Apple spokesman Josh Rosenstock said. “We plan to appeal this ruling.”
