The US federal judge presiding over the government's ongoing anti-trust case against Microsoft has scheduled a hearing on 7 January to consider the software maker's request to delay a hearing on remedies in the case.

Microsoft asked District court judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly on 21 December to postpone the hearings she had set for March, when she was set to hear evidence on what remedies should be imposed on Microsoft for its anti-competitive behaviour.

Microsoft argued in the motion filed last month that it may need four extra months to prepare its defence.
