Tim Cook to be dropped on June 27 due Qualcomm Legal Battle

Tim Cook vs. Qualcomm

Tim Cook will allegedly be heading to court for his much anticipated deposition on June 27, 2018, a constituent with a damning Qualcomm counterclaim against Apple which accuses it of lying to regulators in a bid to spark multiple international government investigations.

At first, Cook was summoned to be remove on or before May 11, 2018, according to the memo — however the iPhone- and modem-makers were unable to settle on a convenient date.

Apple’s contract manufacturing partners who are also named in the suit, which include Compal, Hon Hai Precision Co. (Foxconn), Pegatron, and Wistron, have since signed off on the motion.


It’s rare for Apple’s Chief Executive, himself, to be so closely involved in the company’s legal proceedings — a job most often left to the company’s general counsel, Bruce Sewell, and hired attorneys — however it’s not surprising when the stakes and potential costs are as high as they are in this tantamount legal dispute.
