A US magistrate judge Monday ordered Apple and Amazon to try settling their two-year-old App Store trademark dispute before going to trial August 19.
They'll be closeted together for negotiation on March 21 and the judge said, "No participant in the settlement conference will be permitted to leave the settlement conference before it is concluded."
