CORRECTED-US settles with Macmillan in e-books case - Justice Dept
(Corrects number of settlements in paragraph 2)
WASHINGTON Feb 8 (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department said on Friday it is settling with publisher Macmillan as part of a wide-ranging antitrust case in which the government accused the largest U.S. book publishers of conspiring to raise e-book prices.
Macmillan, also known as Holtzbrinck Publishers LLC, is the fifth book publisher to settle in the case, the Justice Department said in a statement.
The department said it is continuing to litigate against Apple Inc, and a trial is scheduled to begin in June. (Reporting by David Ingram; Editing by Gerald E. McCormick)
