THE INEXORABLE wheels of justice continue to roll, as AMD's lawyers continue to churn out subpoenas on customers
they consider not to be cooperating with the firm's antitrust suit against the Intel
So far this week, AMD has issued subpoenas against NEC and Acer America, naming a number of individuals as part of the discovery process it's initiated. Stan Shih, rightly described as the father of the Taiwanese PC industry by the INQ, is named in the summons as someone who might have talked to Intel.
AMD may just get what it wishes for, a pile of papers so high that it reaches the moon and beyond. As the discovery process is set to continue for many a month yet, there seems little point in speculating on much except to point out that if there's one set of people that's gonna make a heap out of this paper mountain, it's gonna be the lawyers, worldwide.
God bless them! They don't earn enough anyway!
Meanwhile we've established that the class action count against Intel by individuals and restaurants has reached 30 and is rising. Naturally, at some point these will be consolidated into one or two or three or more. Until that happens, possibly in mid-Autumn, we will only relate to you ones of special interest such as Rainwater, the Lazio Brothers, and a chain of Chinese restaurants. µ
