Apple and Ireland have reached a deal on terms for an escrow fund for a €13 billion (US$17.6 billion) fine imposed by the European Union in August last year, with the money to stay in the fund while both the tech firm and Dublin appeal the EU's verdict.
The US Supreme Court has agreed to hear an appeal by the government against the verdict in a case where Microsoft had obtained a ruling allowing it to prevent the government accessing emails stored on a server in Ireland.
The European Union is likely to chastise Ireland for failing to collect a fine of €13 billion (US$17.6 billion) from Apple which was announced on 29 August last year.
