AMD forces 3rd parties to preserve relevant evidence in Intel suit

Posted on Wednesday, July 06 2005 @ 1:59 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
A U.S. court granted AMD its motion to have third parties preserve relevant evidence related to AMD's antitrust case against Intel.
In a statement, Advanced Micro said its motion requesting document preservation was granted by the U.S. District Court of Delaware shortly after it was filed on July 1.

The motion sought a judicial order permitting it to move forward to preserve relevant evidence possessed by specified third parties. Its lawyers will now engage in discussions with about 30 third parties, the statement said.
AMD is suing Intel because they believe the chip giant uses various methods from threats to kickbacks to coerce companies into buying Intel chips instead of AMD processors.
