Intel seeks to remove portions of AMD case

By Justin Mann on
Intel is starting to bite back a bit at AMD in court, seeking to have particulars from the lawsuit removed. The case, which as you are all aware focuses around anti-trust issues, has several points in it that include operations of Intel both in the U.S. and overseas Intel is trying to get some portions of the overseas issues removed, due to court jurisdiction among other reasons. This would allow Intel to focus on issues that relate only to the U.S.

A spokesman for Intel said that if the court grants its motion, the chip giant would not have to unnecessarily prepare for parts of the case that may be irrelevant. But he noted that the remaining parts of the case would still be addressed by the U.S. court.
How this would impact AMD's case is unclear, and since a lot of the antitrust issues have to do with U.S.-based businesses (ala Microsoft) it may not have any impact at all.
