Supreme Court to MS case: Go away

... or I shall taunt you a second time. OK, I added that last part on, but I like it better that way. Scott sent me this CNN.com link that explains that the Supreme Court has "declined" the DOJ's request to hear the Microsoft antitrust trial. This means it will go back to the U.S. Court of Appeals, which has ruled in Microsoft's favor in the past.

An attorney who used to work in the Justice Department's antitrust divison commented that the decision would add a year or more to the resolution of the case. He said he expects things to wrap up sometime in 2002.

Not that it matters; by then Al Gore will have followed up his marvelous Internet creation with something even better that makes Microsoft totally irrelevant. Oops, forget that last part; I'm being told it's time for my medication again.
