Kai-Fu Lee Court Saga Ends
Microsoft and Google have brought an end to their legal battles over Dr. Kai-Fu Lee, who has become famous for defecting to Google to helm their operations in China, and led to Microsoft suing to compel him to comply with his one-year non-compete agreement.
We’ll have to wait for word to start leaking out of the respective camps at Mountain View and Redmond, but for now Todd Bishop’s post about Microsoft’s statement at his Seattle P-I based Microsoft blog will have to suffice:
The companies and Lee were on the verge of going back to court in January, but further appearances won’t be necessary now. We learned a bit about Lee as his drama played out beginning on July 19, like his background in natural language and creating a world-beating Othello program in college.
