Nebraska court puts Microsoft back in the dock

The Nebraska Supreme Court on Friday revived a class-action suit brought by consumers that charges Microsoft with antitrust violations.

In a divided ruling, the court sent the case back to a lower court for further hearings. The suit alleges that Nebraskans who purchased Windows 98 were overcharged by Microsoft and that this was an abuse of its monopoly power, according to court documents. At issue in the case was whether those who bought the operating system software indirectly were eligible to sue. Although the lower court had ruled that they could not, the Nebraska high court ruled otherwise.
