Following the federal ruling essentially branding Microsoft a criminal corporation...Missouri's Attorney General has not decided if he will pursue a lawsuit against the technology giant.
Laetitia Thompson has more from the state capitol.
Rather than join nineteen other states in the federal lawsuit...spokesman for the Attorney General Scott Holste says his office chose to watch and wait.
And when asked if a decision will be made before the November election... Holste said any theoretical timetable is impossible to make.
In the wake of a federal decision against Microsoft...Attorney General Jay Nixon has decided to watch and wait on filing a separate lawsuit against the software maker.
Laetitia Thompson has the story from the state capitol.
According to spokesman Scott Holste... Nixon decided to delay rather than join nineteen other states in the federal lawsuit.
Now Holste says Nixon needs to determine if the decision in the federal lawsuit includes Missouri in any type of settlement.
If not then Holste says Nixon will still need to decide if a lawsuit is in the best interest of the state.
Holste's office says it has no specific timetable for deciding if a lawsuit will be filed against Microsoft.
From Jefferson City, I'm Laetitia Thompson.
