The reimbursements come
from a 2006 settlement the state reached with the software giant over
antitrust allegations. The Wisconsin lawsuit mirrored antitrust cases
in other states that claimed Microsoft consumers paid artificially high
prices as a result of the company’s alleged anticompetitive conduct and
dominant share in the computer software market.
settlement lays out $75 million to $80 million in reimbursements for a
wide range of technology products and services. The exact amount is
still being determined.
