Judge Grants Preliminary Injunction Barring Apple From Harming Unreal Engine, Denies Request to Reinstate Fortnite


Judge Yvonne Gonzales Rogers has issued a preliminary injunction barring Apple from harming Epic's Unreal Engine but denying Epic's request to restore Fortnite to the App Store.
The preliminary injunction cements the Judge's TRO decision and it will remain in effect for the duration of the litigation.

As to Fortnite, nothing has changed in the prior analysis. The Court has empathy for Fortnite players regarding the continued unavailability of the game on the iOS platform. This is especially so during these continued difficult times that is the COVID-19 pandemic era, where gaming and virtual worlds are both social and safe. However, there is significant public interest in requiring parties to adhere to their contractual agreements or in resolving business disputes through the normal course. Thus, the public interest factor weighs in favor of Apple as to Fortnite.
