JUSTICE DEPARTMENT STATEMENT CONCERNING EXPEDITED APPEAL
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- "Immediate Supreme Court review of this case is in the public interest because of its importance to the American economy. We are filing today a request that Judge Jackson certify the case for immediate review by the Supreme Court under the Expediting Act. If Judge Jackson grants our request, we will ask the Supreme Court to hear Microsoft's appeal promptly.
"Microsoft's filing in the Court of Appeals, which was made when Judge Jackson has not even ruled on its stay motion, is an ill-conceived attempt to end-run the Expediting Act."
