Judge Grants Microsoft's Request to Stay Google Case

In a victory for Microsoft Corp., a U.S. District Court judge in California upheld a tentative ruling issued two weeks ago to stay the Kai-Fu Lee case filed by Google Inc., giving a go-ahead for Microsoft's case in Washington state to resolve before Google's case resumes.

In a ruling issued late Thursday in a U.S. District Court in San Jose, California, Judge Ronald Whyte ordered that the California case be put on hold until the Washington case concludes, a decision some believe gives Microsoft an edge in the case. However, if Google loses the case in Washington state, the Mountain View, California, company still has a chance to win its case in its home state.
