Microsoft Pushes for Appeals Court Hearing

Microsoft Corp., in legal papers filed this week, renewed its opposition to sending its antitrust case directly to the U.S.

Supreme Court.

"The need for soundness in the result outweighs the need for speed in reaching it," the company said in a brief filed with the court. The company, which wants the case to first be sent to the U.S. Court of Appeals, was responding to the federal government's earlier argument that the case was of "immense" importance to the national economy and too important to delay.

The government wants the Supreme Court to take the case up now. The high court may decide who will hear the case in as little as two months.
