Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailycaller.com: “Judge Gives Jeff Bezos A Big Win Over Trump, Halts Pentagon’s JEDI Program”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A federal judge temporarily halted Microsoft from building out a massive cloud computing project after Amazon argued President Donald Trump cheated the company out of the lucrative deal.

Judge Patricia Campbell-Smith ruled Thursday that the $10 billion contract cannot proceed “until further order of the court.” Campbell-Smith’s decision came after Amazon asked the court to depose Trump and several current and former White House officials tied to the project.

“We believe that we will ultimately be able to move forward with the work to make sure those who serve our country can access the new technology they urgently require,” Microsoft spokesman Frank Shaw said in a statement reacting to the decision.

Amazon asked the court Monday to produce former Secretary of Defense James Mattis to discuss elements of Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure, or JEDI, a project Amazon was in line to obtain.

Amazon also wants to depose Defense Secretary Mark Esper and Trump himself to answer questions. (RELATED: Amazon’s Jeff Bezos Is Angling To Depose Trump In Fight Over $10 Billion Cloud Contract)
