WSJ.com - Microsoft Wins Small Battle In Google Suit: "In his order, Judge Steven Gonzalez specified that Dr. Lee is temporarily restrained from working on projects at Google in areas including 'computer search technologies' and the Chinese market for them. He said that Microsoft had established 'a well-grounded fear of invasion' of its rights should Dr. Lee work on such projects.
Google said in a statement that it didn't believe the restraining order was necessary. But it said it was 'gratified that the judge recognized that all Google and Dr. Lee have to do is avoid having Dr. Lee do anything competitive with what he did at Microsoft,' which Google said was its intention. Microsoft said in a statement that it was pleased with the ruling."
Rather significant change in Google's tone about the issue.
