AMD requests foreign documents in Intel case
As part of a new development in AMD's ongoing lawsuit against Intel, the plaintiff has filed a motion asking the court to allow it to seek out documents regarding Intel's conduct outside the United States. The motion was filed despite the fact that last month, the judge overseeing the case threw out part of AMD's lawsuit on the grounds that it covered foreign losses for chips neither built nor assembled in the U.S., and that Intel's alleged foreign activities might only have had "ripple effects" in America. Nevertheless, AMD believes it was forced to stop producing chips at home precisely because of lowered demand stemming from Intel's dealings abroad. AMD therefore wants to know about Intel's foreign activities, even if it isn't entitled to pursue damages based on the information found.
