: Trade Groups Appeal Kollar-Kotellys Call"> The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia ruled last year that Microsoft had in fact illegally abused its monopoly power and assigned Kollar-Kotelly to come up with a remedy other than the breakup order that U.S. District Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson initially ordered. The appellate court took Jackson off the case and ordered the case moved to a new judge.
