Microsoft has hired Chicago attorney Dan Webb to help out with its defence in the antitrust case.
Webb defended General Motors in an earlier antitrust case, and his former clients include Iran-Contra defendant John Poindexter, and big tobacco, in the shape of Philip Morris, reports the Chicago Tribune.
Amnesia played a large part in several of the Iran Contra defendents defence strategies, but also in Bill Gates' video deposition, too.
With so many Iran-Contra-era and even Nixon-era veterans in the White House, Webb will feel right at home. ®
