Microsoft again asks Supreme Court for review

In a filing with the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday, Microsoft Corp. continued its strike against the trial court judge who first ruled it an illegal monopoly last year.

The software company again asked the nation’s highest court to review its landmark antitrust case against the Department of Justice and 18 states, on grounds that District Court Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson should have been disqualified from hearing the trial case due to comments he made to the press before issuing his ruling in June 2000. Microsoft first asked for its case to be reviewed by the Supreme Court on Aug. 7.
