Author: JT Smith
InfoWorld reports: "America Online (AOL) and a trio of high-tech industry groups on Friday filed an amici curiae (friend of the court) brief asking the U.S. Court of Appeals to uphold a U.S. District Court judge's ruling to split Microsoft in two. The brief came on the same day as the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) filed court papers in which it also defended the judge's order."
