Judge halts Microsoft’s $10B payday from the Pentagon

Microsoft was awarded a $10 billion cloud-computing contract back in October from the Pentagon. Amazon Cloud Services has filed a lawsuit against Microsoft because they feel like President Trump interfered and cost Amazon the e-tailer the government contract.

Now, a federal judge has halted that contract as the lawsuit progresses. Bezos and Amazon claims that President Trump’s public blasting of Amazon cost them the contract.

The Pentagon has not commented.
