    Antitrust Ruling Reaction On September 26, 2000, after Judge Jackson
    issued his findings of fact, the plaintiffs (to save time) attempted
    to send Microsofts appeal directly to the U.S. Supreme Court.
    However, the Supreme Court declined to hear the appeal and sent the
    case to a federal appeals court.The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals
    overturned Judge Jacksons rulings against Microsoft. This was partly
    because the Appellate court had adopted a drastically altered scope
    of liability under which the Remedies could be taken, and also
    partly due to the embargoed interviews Judge Jackson had given to
    the news media while he was still hearing the case, in violation of
    the Code of Conduct for US Judges.[17] Judge Jackson did not attend
    the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals hearing, in which the appeals
    court judges accused him of unethical conduct and determined he
    should have recused himself from the case.[18]Judge Jacksons
    response to this was that Microsofts conduct itself was the cause of
    any perceived bias; Microsoft executives had proved, time and time
    again, to be inaccurate, misleading, evasive, and transparently
    false. ... Microsoft is a company with an institutional disdain for
    both the truth and for rules of law that lesser entities must
    respect. It is also a company whose senior management is not averse
    to offering specious testimony to support spurious defenses to
    claims of its wrongdoing.[19] However, the appeals court did not
    overturn the findings of fact. The D.C. Circuit remanded the case
    for consideration of a proper remedy under a more limited scope of
    liability. Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly was chosen to hear the
    case.The DOJ announced on September 6, 2001 that it was no longer
    seeking to break up Microsoft and would instead seek a lesser
    antitrust penalty. Microsoft decided to draft a settlement proposal
    allowing PC manufacturers to adopt non-Microsoft
    software.http//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_antitrust
