      Apple sued for anti-trust

      NEW YORK (AP) - The U.S. government has filed an antitrust lawsuit against Apple Inc. and book publishers.

      It said Wednesday that the publishers conspired with Apple to raise retail electronic-book prices to limit competition.

      The government also filed papers saying it has reached a settlement with publishers Hachette, HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster.

      It says it will proceed with its lawsuit against Apple and other publishers, including Holtzbrinck Publishers, doing business as Macmillan, and The Penguin Publishing Co. Ltd., doing business as Penguin Group.
