Yahoo/Microsoft Search AllianceReuters reports that U.S. District Judge Robert Patterson Jr said Yahoo breach of the agreement "established irreparable harm to Microsoft" and thus has to continue the rollout in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

We know Marissa Mayer and previous Yahoo CEOs were not huge fans of the partnership between Microsoft. So it is not crazy to think her priorities at the company is not the transition but building out new things.

"We had a narrow disagreement regarding the Search Alliance rollout in Hong Kong and Taiwan. We have unwavering plans to continue investing in the Search Alliance, now operating in more than 20 countries, and the Bing platform, which is central to our latest products," Microsoft said in a statement on Monday.

"If we decide a new CEO has the same commitment that Steve Ballmer had, then we will go forward with the transition," Yahoo Senior Vice President of Search Products Laurie Mann is quoted as testifying in the court filings.
