Microsoft gets September trial date

Judge Thomas Jackson ruled today that Microsoft would get its day in court on September 8, 1998. Microsoft had asked for seven months to respond to the charges against it and the September date is about half that time. Jackson did rule in Microsoft's favor on another request, however: He has consolidated the federal and state charges against the company into a single suit.
