    Photos from this afternoon:
    Summary of this afternoon's events:
    * DOJ said in court that they have no problems with the nine-state deal and 
    will not be a party to future litigation in this case.
    * Nine states (NY, Michigan, Ohio, NC, Kentucky, Louisana, Maryland, 
    Illinois, Wisconsin) have settled with Microsoft and agreed to a modified 
    version -- details to come -- of the DOJ's agreement inked last week.
    * Nine states and the District of Columbia are going to pursue the 
    litigation. There were some hints in and out of the courtroom today that 
    additional states currently in the pursue-Microsoft-through-the-courts 
    coalition may defect. Personally, I kinda liked the 
    fist-clenching-beat-up-Bill-Gates attitude exuded by Connecticut's top law 
    enforcement official:
