Iowa Judge rules in favor of Microsoft on “innovation” claim

Jason Hancock of the Des Moines Business Record reported this afternoon that Polk County District Judge Scott Rosenberg has ruled Microsoft Corp. cannot be liable for damages based upon the denial of “free choice” and loss of the “benefits of software innovation.”

Although Rosenberg ruled against Microsoft on eight of nine motions attempting to limit damages in the case, the one ruling in Microsoft’s favor appears to be key.
While plaintiffs’ attorneys feel the Iowa case is still very viable, Microsoft believes Judge Rosenberg’s ruling now makes the Iowa case just like all the other Microsoft antitrust cases which have either been settled or dismissed.
