FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CIRCUIT
ELIOT SPITZER ET AL.,
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.
I hereby certify that on this 30th day of October, 2000, I served a copy of the foregoing APPELLEES' JOINT RESPONSE TO MOTIONS REGARDING AMICUS PARTICIPATION on the following:
