Microsoft and the Justice Department are expected to present a settlement of their antitrust fight to a trial judge today. U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft is expected to hold a news conference later today announcing the details.
The Associated Press , quoting anonymous sources says that:
However, states involved in the case have apparently decided to ask for more time. State attorneys general who joined in the original lawsuit will apparently ask U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly for an extra four days to a week. If states can't support the federal settlement, they can object during public hearings in an effort to demolish the deal. Or they can take up a separate court case.
