Microsoft Class Actions

Montgomery McCracken serves as national class action counsel to Microsoft Corporation, having represented Microsoft in its class actions in federal and state courts since 1993. These cases include dozens of indirect-purchaser class actions in which consumers allege that they were overcharged for certain operating system and application software. We have successfully defended many class certification motions in cases alleging breach of warranty, common law torts and statutory consumer protection claims regarding operating systems, application software, Internet access service, and hardware products. We were also Microsoft’s national counsel for Y2K litigation when that was considered to be a major source of potential liability for computer hardware and software companies. All of those cases were dismissed on motion.
