Interestingly, the class action bias suit against Microsoft is being tried in front of that self-same Judge Jackson. Don’t be too surprised if Microsoft requests a different judge. I think they can make a pretty solid case now that they can’t be guaranteed a fair trial in front of him.

I’m not completely sure of the process. I think that they would request that he remove himself from the case, and if he refuses then they’d appeal to the Circuit Court (the one which overturned him in ‘95 and probably will overturn much or most of his June decision), who probably would then order him off the case.
