MICROSOFT ANTITRUST TRIAL SET TO OPEN MONDAY

By CBR Staff Writer

Microsoft’s eagerly-awaited antitrust trial will go ahead as scheduled Monday after Judge Thomas Jackson rejected a plea by the software giant to postpone the proceedings a further two weeks. Microsoft had asked for the postponement in response to changes in the Justice Department’s witness list made late last week. In rejecting the request the judge did, however, grant the company the right to depose the witnesses – executives from Apple Computer Inc and Sun Microsystems Inc – as well as garner additional information on them from their respective companies as part of the discovery process. Separately, it was revealed that during the trial the government will be showing a video tape of Bill Gate’s testimony before state and federal prosecutors. Gates was a conspicuous absentee from the witness lists produced by both sides.
