Late Apple founder Steve Jobs told attorneys that that he had "not much" understanding of why the company he co-founded was being sued in a class action case, according to testimony released today by Apple. When asked early in a video deposition -- which was taken six months before Jobs died in October of 2011 -- if he understood what the claims in the case were, Jobs replied: "I don't know what the claims in the case are." Apple fought to keep Jobs from being deposed, as he was ill and on medical leave at the time. The company is currently in the second day of a trial defending against allegations that it violated antitrust laws when it updated the iconic iPod in 2006. Plaintiffs allege that the move kept rivals off the platform, while Apple says it was a legitimate product improvement.
