The judge in the US Department of Justice's anti-trust case against Microsoft has appointed a mediator, after the two sides failed to come to a settlement on their own.

On 27 September, Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly met both sides of the anti-trust case - centred on allegations that Microsoft illegally tied its Internet Explorer browser software to its Windows operating system - and urged them to work towards a settlement by 2 November.

The judge gave Microsoft and the DoJ until 12 October to develop a settlement plan of their own, but the sides could not agree, and they asked that a mediator be appointed.

As a result, the judge last Friday appointed Eric Green, a professor at Boston University's school of law who has focused much of his career on alternative dispute resolution or finding ways to settle cases out of court.
