WASHINGTON - A U.S. District Court judge did the expected on Monday, ruling that Microsoft violated U.S. antitrust rules by abusing its monopoly power in personal computer operating systems. Microsoft says it will appeal.
It was a big victory for the Justice Department and the 19 American states that began their lawsuit against the software giant two years ago. Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson found that Microsoft violated parts of the Sherman Act, a ruling that could lead to the breakup of the software giant.
