  • A U.S. judge on Thursday granted Amazon’s request to temporarily halt the U.S. Department of Defense and Microsoft from moving forward on an up-to-$10 billion cloud computing deal that Amazon says reflected undue influence by President Donald Trump.
  • Amazon, which had been seen as a front-runner to win the contract, filed a lawsuit in November just weeks after the contract was awarded to Microsoft.
  • Trump has publicly derided Amazon head Jeff Bezos and repeatedly criticized the company.
