This morning, a class (er, "caucus"?) of Iowa consumers and businesses announced their settlement of an antitrust case against Microsoft, according to the NYT.  The class sought to recover overcharges of up to $453 million.  Iowa declined to accept its part of an earlier settlement and had started trying its case against Microsoft.  The en banc D.C. Circuit previously upheld a judgment against Microsoft for antitrust violations in the federal government’s civil case.  United States v. Microsoft Corp., 253 F.3d 34 (D.C. Cir. 2001) (per curiam).
