Microsoft California Class Action
Our work with Microsoft has spanned a variety of case matters, involving many experts and many types of tasks, beginning before discovery and lasting through trial preparation and settlement negotiations. We have identified experts in a broad range of disciplines, including class certification, information technology, the software industry, technology/Internet company stock market dynamics, survey design, industrial organization, pricing, antitrust liability, and damages. In a California class action suit, Professor John Hauser evaluated consumer preferences for widely used software, relative to new software. Professor Hauser's analysis of consumer choice provided an important input to Professor Robert Hall's affirmative damages model in this matter.
