The Harvard law expert at the centre of a wrangle betwee the US Department of Justice (DoJ) and Microsoft has dug his heels in at suggestions that he is biased.
According to US wire reports, Professor Lawrence Lessig has told DoJ and Microsoft lawyers that he refused to step down.
Microsoft claims that Lessig, appointed a 'special master' in a civil contempt of course case initiated by the DoJ, is prejudiced against the company (see yesterday's story). Lessig strenuously denies this.
But despite Lessig?s refusal to exit the process, Microsoft said it will continue to press for his removal on ?serious legal and procedural grounds including [his] bias against Microsoft.?
That case will come up next Monday, when Judge Thomas Jackson will review Lessig?s position.
