IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CIRCUIT
No. 00-5212 UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,
No. 00-5213 STATE OF NEW YORK, EX REL. ATTORNEY GENERAL
ELIOT SPITZER ET AL.,
APPELLEES' JOINT RESPONSE TO MOTIONS
REGARDING AMICUS PARTICIPATION
The Court's Order of October 26, 2000, directed that the parties file any responses to the motions for leave to participate as amicus curiae by Monday, October 30, 2000. In light of the importance of the case, the United States and the State Plaintiffs gave consent to all movants who sought it prior to filing. We support the Court's permitting any amicus filings that it would find helpful.
In the interest of full disclosure, we note that one movant, Dr. Lee A. Hollaar, provided compensated consulting services to the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice in 1995 in connection with a matter involving Microsoft Corporation.
