Fourth Circuit decides Microsoft suit

A panel of the Fourth Circuit has ruled that consumers who purchased Microsoft software indirectly cannot sue the software company in federal court for claims related to the U.S. Department of Justice' antitrust suit. The opinion in Kloth v. Microsoft Corp. dismissed all claims in a federal suit that attempted to create a nationwide class of people who purchased Windows, Word and other Microsoft software during the 1990s but did not buy it directly from Microsoft.
