States force Microsoft into two-front defense
Author: JT Smith
Kelly McNeill writes "The proposed settlement between Microsoft Corp. and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has caused a split in the DOJ's plaintiff partners -- 18 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia. Half of the 18 states that had joined the DOJ's prosecution in the Microsoft antitrust case said Tuesday they would sign the negotiated settlement between the company and federal lawyers, and half said they would continue to pursue the litigation in an effort to get harsher restrictions."
