NOTES FROM THE MICROSOFT TRIAL

By CBR Staff Writer

– Asked on the courthouse steps why he had not tackled the witness further on the market split allegations – the crux of the government’s case – lead attorney David Boies said that he felt the points about the witnesses credibility had been made.

– Microsoft spokesman Mark Murray, mopping up after what was arguably Microsoft’s worst day in court, wrote it off as a non- event. He claimed that the government’s case was hurt by its failure to deal with Rosen’s testimony and by a lack of technical understanding.

– Despite Murray’s brave face, the sight of the judge staring heavenward in exasperation during the latter part of the afternoon spoke volumes about what harm yesterday did to Microsoft’s case.
