Judge Stops Microsoft Hearing; Ruling Pending

On Wednesday, in an abrupt turn of events, Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson, shut down any further testimony on the Microsoft Antitrust case. He advised each side to file any final papers by the end of the week.

This was the first set of hearings since the news last month that Microsoft allegedly maintained a monopoly with its operating system. The judge said he intended to hear no more evidence on the government's radical proposals to split Microsoft in two.

The only reason given was that the judge said he wanted to ask a higher court to hear the evidence, and that he would defer ruling on the break-up plans until after an appeal.
