Microsoft Goes to Court to Get Documents

Microsoft has asked U.S. federal courts to force it's domestic competitors to release documents that the European Commission refuses to release.  Microsoft believes that competitors have had secret meetings with the Commission, something it says is alluded to in documents already in its possession.  Cases have been filed in New York, California, and Massachusetts.  These documents relate to the ongoing antitrust action in Europe over non-Windows client connections to Windows Server.  Microsoft contends that it needs these documents to defend itself against Commission action.

Microsoft has also posted its supplemental response to the EU, filed on March 2, to its web site.

MacWorld has the story.
