Bezos and Obama judge hault MSFT and DOD contract on JEDI.... MSFT falls
Bezos lost the contract bid. So he shops a judge, appointed by Obama, and gets a temporary injunction.

Bezos wants to depose Trump in this case.


quote:

A U.S. judge on Thursday granted Amazon.com Inc's request for a preliminary injunction to pause the U.S. Department of Defense and Microsoft Corp from moving forward on an up-to-$10 billion cloud computing deal. Judge Patricia E. Campbell-Smith made public her order but did release a sealed opinion accompanying the decision. She also ordered Amazon to post $42 million in the event that the injunction was issued wrongfully.

That's not the way injunctions work. That's why parties seeking injunctions are required to post a bond.

Impossible to "judge shop." this is court of federal claims - only place to hear it. You don't get to pick your judge. Take your political crap to poli board.

After they won the bid, which wasn’t surprising since they were the leader in the space.

and gets a temporary injunction.
Similar to what happened last time after Oracle sued over Amazon winning it.

It’s just that last time the justification was based on potential conflicts that were biased for Amazon, and this time it was based on potential conflicts that were biased against Amazon with Trump suddenly intervening, while he was feuding with Bezos.

So if nothing was done improperly then I’m sure things will proceed as they were, and the government may get to collect $42 million for the delay.
