The U.S. Supreme court today agreed to complaint of consumers accusing Apple that the company monopolized the market of applications for iPhone and forces them to overpay. Thus, the court rejected the company’s attempt to avoid trial on charges of violation of antitrust rules.

Apple shares fell about 5% after news that four of the five judges upheld the lower court’s decision on the resolution of collective action. The plaintiffs will be able to demand billions of dollars in compensation for the damages if they win the lawsuit. Apple accused the requirement of compulsory sale applications through the App Store, and the mandatory fee in the amount of 30% named excessive.

Trying to avert a lawsuit, the company said that it acts only as an agent, and application developers set their own prices. According to Apple, the Supreme court ruling, allowing the case to continue, will pose a threat to e-Commerce is a rapidly growing segment of the U.S. economy, estimated in hundreds of billions of dollars a year.

However, the court took the side of consumers who are not satisfied with what they overpay 30% every time you make a purchase in the App Store.

Apple has not yet commented on the situation.

The original lawsuit was filed in Federal court in California in 2011.
