Short Take: Caldera, Microsoft case heats up

Attorneys for Microsoft and Caldera are scheduled tomorrow to face off in a Salt Lake City federal courthouse over nine separate motions filed by the software giant in regards to a lawsuit between the two. Caldera claims the motions arbitrarily break up claims made in the lawsuit and should not be accepted by the court. Microsoft, meanwhile, says its motions for summary judgement are proper. Caldera filed the suit in 1996, alleging that Microsoft employed a pattern of anticompetitive conduct to knock a competing operating system, known as DR-DOS, out of the market.
