Microsoft settlement in trouble
Author: JT Smith
Kelly McNeill writes: "The U.S. District Court judge handling the Microsoft antitrust case is meeting Tuesday with court-appointed mediator Eric Green to determine whether the settlement tentatively negotiated last week between the software giant and the Department of Justice (DOJ) can withstand opposition from members of the 18-state alliance that were co-plaintiffs in the case. California and Massachusetts, two states with large high-tech industries, plan to reject the settlement, sources believe."
