  • ANTITRUST INVESTIGATION WILL NOT GO AWAY FOR MICROSOFT

         U.S. District Judge Stanley Sporkin threw out a proposed
    settlement for a "crucial" antitrust case, saying the deal
    between Microsoft Corp. and the U.S. Justice Department was "too
    narrow" and would allow the company to "continue anti-competitive
    practices."  The ruling was "hailed" by many of Microsoft's
    competitors, who have complained about Microsoft since the FTC
    began looking at the company's business practices in '90.  What
    happens next, observers said, is up to the Justice Department and
    it could take "several paths."  One would be to appeal the
    ruling, arguing that the judge "overstepped his role" in the
    case.  But they could also choose to try to work out a new
    settlement or void the settlement and fight the company in court
    (Elizabeth Corcoran, WASHINGTON POST, 2/15).
