Judge Jackson finally defends himself for speaking to the press about the Microsoft case. The real problem is that the DC Circuit did not want publicity because it massively botched the case. Microsoft violated antitrust law, and violated its consent agreement, but it is not going to suffer any punishment because of horrible DC Circuit decisions. I'm glad that Jackson talked to the press about the case, because it gave the public an inside view of the case. We need more scrutiny of the courts, not less. I think that all federal court and appellate proceedings should be open to TV cameras.
