Intel Requests Judge Set Limit in AMD Antitrust Suit

Chip maker Intel has requested that a U.S. judge limit charges filed against it in an ongoing antitrust lawsuit with Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) to sales made within the United States, Bloomberg News reports via the Los Angeles Times.

Intel claims that the majority of damages Sunnyvale, Calif.-based AMD is seeking are based on sales of Intel’s German-produced processors in countries other than the United States, and American courts therefore have no jurisdiction, according to Bloomberg.

AMD filed the suit against Intel last year because it claims the company created an unfair monopoly in the computer chip market and tried to “coerce customers to refrain from dealing with AMD,” Bloomberg reports.
