"To understand the strengths, weaknesses, and workings of these movements, I’ve found myself reflecting on a brief moment in 2018 legal history that, on its surface, couldn’t be much further from sexual harassment in Hollywood: United States v. Microsoft Corporation." (Ethan Zuckerman, Mistrust: Why Losing Faith In Institutions Provides the Tools to Transform Them)

Can you paraphrase the emphasized part?

In 2018 there was a case - so that is legal history.

This appears to be a corporate case - The government Vs Microsoft.
Nothing to do with sexual harassment in Hollywood. As unrelated to that as a case could be.

Ie it couldn't be much further from Hollywood sexual harrassment.


At last it appears that way, on the surface. Superficially, there are no connections to be made between that Microsoft case and Hollywood sexual harrassment.

But for some reason he is bringing it up. So he is making some sort of connection between the two situations.
