AMD pursues NEC, Fujistu

Yet more subpoenas sent

AMD vs Intel AMD continues to send NEC fresh subpoenas, adding more names to the list of staff it believes possess evidence that will prove its allegation that Intel acted contrary to US antitrust law.

Documents filed with the US District Court of Delaware this week and seen by The Register show a pair of new subpoenas, both of which name Hirofumi Okuyama, an NEC Senior VP and head of the company's US operation.

NEC has already filed a series of objections to AMD's subpoenas, saying they are "vague and overly broad", "unduly burdensome" and "seeks materials irrelevant to the subject matter of this litigation".

AMD lawyers also filed documents that revealed they have issued a further subpoena to Fujitsu's US operation. This second request likewise extends the list of Fujitsu employees AMD believes hold documents that will back up its claims.

Intel has until 6 September to respond the AMD's complaint. ®
