Judge grants Amazon’s request to put Microsoft’s $10B Pentagon contract on hold

A federal judge on Thursday ordered the Pentagon to temporarily halt a $10 billion cloud-computing contract with Microsoft after Amazon claimed President Trump caused it to lose out on the deal. Amazon filed a lawsuit in November just weeks after the contract was awarded to Microsoft. The lawsuit said the Defense Department’s decision was a result of ’improper pressure from President Trump’.
