Plans to question Gates
Attorneys for Vaco will begin the questioning on behalf of the states that are suing Microsoft. Questioning from Justice Department attorneys will follow.
The session is being videotaped.
Regulators and Microsoft have been arguing about how long Gates will be deposed. The U.S. District Court judge hearing the case ultimately sided with the DOJ, meaning regulators have no time limit for completing their questioning.
Depositions from more than a dozen other Microsoft executives will be taken as well. The trial is set to begin on September 23.
Microsoft declined comment.
