Judge To Google: Take it to the DOJ

Judge Kollar-Kotelly basically told Google that they are not a party to the Microsoft antitrust case and if they have problems, they can take their concerns to the Justice Department or the states who are parties to the case.  This issue arose over desktop search.  Google had complained, and Microsoft agreed to changes in Vista to accommodate Google's product.

Google wanted more oversight of Microsoft and that it be extended past November.  The judge said if there was going to be an extension, it was up to the DOJ and the states to ask for it.  The judge said they stand in the shoes of the consumer.  Is this outcome really a surprise? 

More is in the Wall Street Journal and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.
