Microsoft sues local man & wins

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -Computer giant Microsoft sues a Plainview businessman and wins. A judge ruled last week that Johnny Rose and his company "epic computer solutions" did violate Microsoft copyrights and trademarks. 

Microsoft asked for nearly $1 million in punitive damages. The judge said in his written order that Microsoft's request was excessive.   Instead, the judge ordered Rose to pay $1,500 in actual damages and $3,000 in attorney fees.
