Consumer Can't Sue Microsoft
from the nice-try dept
The state Supreme Court of Connecticut has ruled that a consumer doesn’t have the right to sue Microsoft personally for anti-trust violations, concerning his purchase of a PC with Windows 98 from Staples. The court ruled that the consumer was too far removed from Microsoft to bring a claim against them. This seems silly if he actually was harmed by Microsoft’s monopoly (a different argument altogether). Though, if he did end up suing (and even winning) then imagine the insanity of lawsuits that would follow.
