Reports were circulating yesterday that officials from the federal and state governments are now investigating allegations that Microsoft Corp destroyed evidence related to its upcoming antitrust trial. Sources close to the Justice Department have apparently been spreading the word that the software company and Waggener Edstrom, which handles the majority of its public relations work, ditched documents and e-mail relating to what the government contends was Microsoft’s effort to undermine Sun Microsystems Inc’s Java programming language. The DOJ tells us, however, that there’s not much to the reports, suggesting that it could be nothing more than the next wave of hype surrounding the celebrated case. Microsoft, for its part, has denied any such actions and maintains that it has fully cooperated with the government’s investigation.
