The Fight Starts – AMD vs Intel

Sunday 17 July 2005 @ 5:24 pm

According to representatives for AMD and Intel said on Friday, July 15, 2005, lawyers with the two companies will sit down in August to discuss for the first time their latest antitrust case.

The meeting has been scheduled for the first week of August 2005. Attorneys are expected to swap names and addresses of people and documents they are likely to use at trial to defend their side of the story.

By the way, Intel has until Sept. 6, 2005 to file a response to AMD’s complaints, court documents filed in Delaware show either to deny all claims, or, you know…… :D

Soon after the first lawsuit filed, AMD filed similar suit in Japan against Intel.

So far, quite a number of companies have been subpoenaed, including computer retailers Best Buy and Circuit City, along with hardware manufacturers Sony, Sun Microsystems, Acer, Gateway, Lenovo, NEC-CI, Rackable and Tech Data have agreed to AMD’s subpoena for information.

The lawyers arguing the suits are expected to fight aggressively, according to one legal insider.

“Talk about a declaration of all-out war,” said Tom Horton, partner, Thelen Reid & Priest, and a former Department of Justice attorney who also worked at the Federal Trade Commission from 1984 to 1987. “I think the companies have hired the best and the brightest to argue their cases. These people know their stuff.”
