Timeframe set for AMD/Intel antitrust trial


— 3:46 PM on April 20, 2006

We have been informed that Intel and AMD have met in court for the first time today in a Wilmington, Delaware court. The meeting was an initial status conference, during which the parties set a timeframe for the duration of the antitrust case. A protective order designed to limit information disclosure in order to protect trade secrets will be submitted on May 22. The parties will meet again in September to agree on a trial date, and the cut-off for document production will take place on December 31, 2006. Depositions will follow throughout 2007, with a trial expected some time in 2008. AMD hopes for the trial to begin within the first three months of 2008, while Intel prefers a September start date. AMD lead counsel Charles P. Diamond wasted no time commenting on the case, stating right after the conference that "the facts of this case are very clear. Through a global pattern of monopoly abuse, Intel harms computer manufacturers and consumers in the United States and around the world by raising prices, limiting choice and stifling innovation."
