Microsoft still trying for penalty delay
Author: JT Smith
Kelly McNeill writes: "Microsoft again asked a federal appeals court to delay sending its antitrust case back to a lower court for a new penalty while the software giant appeals to the Supreme Court. The filing late Tuesday was in response to the government's request to proceed with the penalty phase in district court while Microsoft exhausts its review of rulings that it violated antitrust law. The government and some legal analysts have said Microsoft is trying to postpone any court-imposed remedy before the newest operating system is widely distributed."
