Holding firm on his resolution to get the remedies phase of the Microsoft trial over as quickly as possible, Judge Jackson announced late yesterday that the "punishment" hearing will start on May 24.

That gives the Justice Department and the 19 states a little more than three weeks to work on the government's proposal for punishment, due April 28. According to the timetable set forth in Judge Jackson's order, Microsoft will have until May 10 to review and reply to the government's proposal. Then the government must file its rebuttal to Microsoft's reply by May 17.
