We have a short update on the ongoing dispute in the Bombay High Court between Microsoft and Girnar. For a background of the case so far read Prashant’s post available here and Balu’s update here. As reported by Times of India, an appeal bench has now stayed the proceedings before Justice Gautam Patel. The matter was supposed to be heard on August 1, 2016 to decide on the terms of withdrawal of the suit and consent terms. Settlement talks between the parties had begun and were held even on Wednesday. However, Microsoft moved the court and was granted a stay on Thursday. The matter will next be heard in the second week of August. I do not have the full text of the latest stay order, so if any of our readers has a copy or any additional information on this, please write in.
