The first real sign of action in an anti-trust suit against Intel took place in the US yesterday when Intergraph lawyers crossed swords with their counterparts at the chip giant. According to US reports, Intel lawyers asked a circuit court judge in Washington to overturn a decision by a district court judge Edwin Nelson that it supply Intergraph with technical information. The reports added that Intel is stoutly maintaining it does not have monopolistic power and that it was unfair it had to share technical information with its customer. Intergraph started a private suit against Intel last year, claiming that it had unilaterally withdrawn vital market and technical information after the workstation company sued the chip giant over an alleged infringement of its patents. The US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) will watch Intergraph's proceedings with great attention. Its own case against Intel starts next February. The Register will cover these cases with as much attention as we are currently covering the Microsoft case. ® Some related stories The FTC case against Intel Intergraph demands instant conviction for Intel Feds probe secrets of Great Satan of Chips Intergraph thinks Intel's a CAD Intergraph wins key court order in Intel fight Intel details case against FTC claim Judge tells DoJ it can't move case Intel strikes back at Intergraph Intergraph expects flat quarter, blames Intel Intergraph CEO claims Intel grossly misrepresents facts Compaq and Acer figure in FTC investigation FTC set to widen Intel investigation Compaq-PB dragged into FTC Intel case FTC investigations recommend action against Intel Intel appeals to another judge Intel seeks deal with FTC FTC issues Intel handcuffing order
