Microsoft, Washington state in spyware suits

Microsoft and Washington Attorney General Rob McKenna on Wednesday plan to announce a pair of lawsuits related to spyware. The legal action will be among the first filed under a new state antispyware law that went into effect in July 2005.

The cases are meant to help protect consumers from spyware, according to a Microsoft media alert sent Tuesday. The announcement of the law suits is scheduled for 9 a.m. Wednesday in Seattle.
