AMD Antitrust Case Against Intel Set For Trial In 2009

The trial will proceed in U.S. Federal District Court in Delaware. However, Judge Joseph Farnan granted Intel's motion to dismiss some of AMD's charges because they were outside of U.S. jurisdiction.

A weakened AMD antitrust case against Intel has been scheduled for trial in 2009 after a federal judge dismissed some charges brought against Intel by its chief rival chip manufacturer.

The trial will proceed in U.S. Federal District Court in Delaware. However, Judge Joseph Farnan granted Intel's motion to dismiss some of AMD's charges relating to foreign conduct on jurisdictional grounds. The judge ruled on that portion Tuesday, saying that AMD manufactures its processors in Germany and assembles them in Malaysia, Singapore and China.

"The Court concludes that the alleged injuries suffered by AMD as a result of Intel's foreign conduct are foreign injuries that occurred in foreign markets," the judge ruled. "The Court concludes that AMD lacks standing to pursue its claims based on foreign injury."

Intel said it was "pleased" with the decision.

AMD is also pursuing antitrust charges against Intel in various foreign courts and some of its complaints remain to be aired in the Delaware court.
