Judge issues order against MS

A federal judge has issued a temporary
order forbidding Microsoft (MSFT) from requiring
Windows 95 licensees to carry Internet Explorer.
U.S. District Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson
ordered the software giant to "cease and desist"
from the practice, which is at the heart of a case
the Justice Department brought against the company
in late October.
In the 19-page ruling, Jackson denied for the
moment Justice's request to find Microsoft in
violation of the decree, saying that the government
has yet to prove its case. But he went on to say that
Justice "appears to have a substantial likelihood of
success" in the case and issued the preliminary
injunction pending a resolution in the case.
