Canada court allows Microsoft suit to proceed, says no on ADM
OTTAWA, Oct 30 (Reuters) - Consumers may join a class action lawsuit against Microsoft Corp over alleged unfair pricing, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled on Thursday.
But the high court refused to allow a class action to proceed against Archer Daniels Midland Co and Cargill Inc over alleged price-fixing on high-fructose corn syrup.
The Supreme Court, in its decision on Microsoft, certified a class action suit against the company.
The cases are Pro-Sys Consultants Ltd et al. v. Microsoft Corp et al. (B.C.) (34282) and Sun-Rype Products Ltd et al. v. Archer Daniels Midland Co et al. (B.C.) (34283).
