Here is an update to the ongoing Iowa consumer case against Microsoft:

Polk County, Iowa District Court Judge Scott Rosenberg has ruled that Roxanne Conlin is allowed to try the case against Microsoft.  Microsoft had filed a motion attempting to exclude Conlin on the basis that she had engaged in misconduct when she persuaded a Hewlett-Packard technician to give her internal documents from another case.  Judge Rosenberg has found "no unethical or improper conduct by Ms. Conlin". 

So it’s game on.  Trial is set for November 13, 2006.
