A concerned Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly postponed the trial this morning after learning that the states had changed some of the wording of their proposal. Microsoft had asked for a two-week delay. Lawyers for the states argued that the wording changes were simply clarification, but John Warden, Microsofts lead attorney in the case, said the changes were more significant.
