Intel antitrust trial rescheduled

We'll have to wait a further six weeks now

The US Federal Trade Commission's hearing into Intel's alleged antitrust business practices has been delayed again. An administrative judge yesterday pushed the date of the trial back to 23 February 1999, citing the "unusually great" accumulation of evidence being prepared for the case. His decision was made after both Intel and FTC lawyers requested more time to evalauate each others' evidence. The six-week delay marks the second time the trial has been put back. Originally set for the beginning of January, the hearing was recently moved to 12 January to accommodate the presiding judge's work schedule. ® Click for more stories
