The Wall Street Journal: Judge delays lawsuit over Pentagon cloud-computing contract

WASHINGTON — A federal judge delayed a lawsuit over a massive Pentagon cloud-computing contract Amazon.com Inc. was favored to win so the government could investigate what it said was “new information” on possible conflicts of interest in the procurement process.

Senior Judge Eric Bruggink of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims ordered the stay on Tuesday “while the Department of Defense reconsiders whether possible personal conflicts of interest impacted the integrity of the JEDI Cloud procurement,” according to his order.
