Judge appoints mediator in Microsoft case
Author: JT Smith
Kelly McNeill writes "The U.S. District Court judge overseeing the Microsoft antitrust case has chosen a mediator to preside over settlement talks. Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly issued an order late Friday appointing Boston University law professor Eric Green to mediate for the two sides. The judge noted that both parties had suggested Green for the job. Judge Kollar-Kotelly has warned both sides that if they fail to reach a settlement by November 2nd, she will set hearings in March to determine sanctions against Microsoft for its antitrust violations."
