The Amazon Bookstore was in business in Minneapolis, MN for many years before
the advent of Amazon.com. I don't know whether it wa involved in sales
beyond the Mineapolis metro area, although it may well have done business
nationally, in light of the fact that it is a specialty store.
According to recent reports, depositions have been fierce. As I nuderstand
it, the court is currently considering whether to allow A.com to pursue a
line of questioning regarding the sexual preferneces and marital status of
Amazon Books employees.
