Microsoft Asks Supreme Court to Defer

Wednesday July 26 by Claudia bourneYahoo
Microsoft Corp. Wednesday asked the Supreme Court to send its appeal of antitrust violations back to a lower appeals court, instead of considering it directly. District Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson ruled in June that Microsoft had used its monopoly power to compete illegally and unfairly and should be split in two. Microsoft said its appeal raises far too many factual and legal issues for the high court to sort out easily.The company also criticized Judge Jackson for granting interviews about the case to members of the media. Microsoft said that raised ``serious question(s)'' about Jackson's ''impartiality and betray(s) a misguided belief that'' the government was ``entitled to the remedy of (its) choice, no matter how extreme.''
