New Judge to Decide Microsoft's Fate in Antitrust Trial

(August 24, 2001)
Federal Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly today was named to decide the punishment Microsoft should receive for violating federal antitrust laws.

Kollar-Kotelly is an appointee of former President Clinton and will oversee what is seen by many as the most important U.S. antitrust case since the breakup of Standard Oil. She takes over the case from U.S. District Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson, who had previously ordered Microsoft to be split into two companies, one which focuses on computer operating systems and one whic focuses on applications. Jackson's breakup order was thrown out last June and today the federal appeals court handed the case to Kollar-Kotelly.
