Judge Rules Lawyers Should Get $4 Million In Wisconsin Microsoft Case

November 29, 2007 A Wisconsin circuit court judge said Monday that lawyers from a Minneapolis law firm should get $4.2 million in fees and expenses to resolve a nearly yearlong dispute with Microsoft Corp. (MSFT). The case represented one of the last state court antitrust lawsuits the company has defended against. The case has been settled since early 2006 and two other groups of attorneys have been paid $5 million each. A third law firm represented by Richard Hagstrom, a Minneapolis attorney with Zelle, Hofmann, Voelbel, Mason & Gette, was seeking $22.6 million in fees for its part in the lawsuit.
