UKUUG Press Release on BSI and OOXML (10)

Thursday 19th June 2008

UKUUG has issued a press release on the case today.

UKUUG appeals the initial court decision on BSI's OOXML action

The High Court has rejected the UKUUG's application for a Judicial Review of BSI's actions in voting 'yes' to the fast-tracking of the Microsoft sponsored DIS29500 (OOXML) in April 2008. UKUUG is appealing that decision since it believes that the judge was wrong in his reading of the papers. The matter will now be heard in open court.
