Microsoft Appeals Vista Class Action Certification

Microsoft is appealing the class action certification in the Vista Capable lawsuit.  The company is asking the judge to delay the suit until the 9th Circuit can decide whether class plaintiffs from around the country can sue under Washington State consumer protection laws.  The company claims proceeding would force it to direct employees to deal with the suit instead of their jobs, thus harming the company.  And lurking in the background, of course, is another potential round of damaging emails and other documents that may come out through further discovery.  It was hard to put a good face on the last batch.  Here they are, courtesy of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, which also has the details on this latest move.
