(Reuters) - Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O) will ask a judge to temporarily block Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) from working on a $10 billion cloud contract from the Pentagon, a court filing showed on Monday. Amazon, which was seen as a favorite for the contract, plans to file a motion for a temporary restraining order on Jan. 24 and a federal court will issue its decision on Feb. 11, according to the filing. The e-commerce giant has blamed U.S. President Donald Trump of exerting "improper pressure" and bias that led the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to award the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure Cloud (JEDI) contract to Microsoft.
