Judge Delays Ruling to After Market Close

NEW YORK (06/07/2000) - U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson will release his final judgment in the Microsoft Corp. antitrust case at 4:30 p.m.

EDT today, after the market closes.

Earlier today, the court hotline for the press had said that the ruling would be issued at 3:00 p.m. EDT.

In his ruling, Judge Jackson will lay out the remedies he wants to impose on the software maker.

Jackson is widely expected to order a breakup of the company and also to impose behavioral remedies aimed at stopping what he has deemed to be Microsoft's illegal behavior and at opening competition in the operating system market. The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and 19 state attorneys general are the plaintiffs in the case.

The ruling will be available online at http://usvms.gpo.gov/.

Additional details to follow when the final judgment is released.
