Microsoft Settles California Antitrust Claims

Microsoft Corp., tentatively agreed to pay $70 million in vouchers to several California municipalities to settle an antitrust claim that it used its market dominance to overcharge government customers, plaintiff lawyers said on Tuesday. The class action suit was filed in August 2004 by the cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles and the counties of Santa Clara, San Mateo, Los Angeles and Contra Costa. The agreement is still pending court approval.
