Gov't rejects M'soft changes

Published on .

In yet another court filing in the ongoing saga between Microsoft Corp. and the U.S. Department of Justice, the government and 19 states rejected most of the more than 100 changes the Redmond, Wash.-based software giant requested in the proposed remedy phase of its antitrust case. U.S. District Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson requested today's DOJ filing and is expected to rule this week on a proposal to break Microsoft into two. In the latest volley, the government criticized Microsoft's proposed changes, contending that they created "loopholes" that would allow the company to "continue to engage in anticompetitive practices."
