NPR's Larry Abramson reports a federal appeals court has struck down the decision ordering the breakup of Microsoft. Seven judges of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled unanimously that lower court Judge Thomas Penfield Jackson gave the appearance of bias in the case when he made negative statements about Microsoft to the news media. But the judges upheld Jackson's finding that the software company engaged in anti-competitive behavior to maintain a monopoly. The appeals court sent the decision back to the lower court for a different judge to decide a new penalty.
