Short Take: DOJ files motion to block protective order

The Justice Department has filed a motion objecting to Microsoft's plans to modify a protective order that governed discovery in the high-profile antitrust case the software giant is battling. The modification, affecting highly confidential material, will "potentially wreak havoc with the ongoing, orderly discovery in this case, and almost certainly delay the court's pretrial and trial schedules," the document argues. Microsoft denies this.
