Reuters/Yahoo: Microsoft rivals hire Starr of Whitewater fame

“An industry trade group representing rivals of Microsoft Corp.
said on Friday it had hired former Whitewater prosecutor Kenneth
Starr to help support the government as the antitrust case against
the software giant moves through the appeals process.”

“Starr, whose credentials include a stint on the U.S. Court of
Appeals that is hearing the case, has been engaged by Procomp, an
organization that includes AOL Time Warner, Sun Microsystems Inc.
and Oracle Corp….”

“Starr, who continued a probe into President Clinton’s
investment in a failed Arkansas land deal called Whitewater, is
best known for his dogged pursuit of Clinton’s affair with White
House intern Monica Lewinsky. He stepped down as Whitewater
prosecutor in 1999.”
