Updated An aggrieved US company has filed an assault, libel and slander suit against chip giant Intel. Techsearch LLC filed suit against Intel earlier this week. The case is connected to allegations that Intel, under the guise of a shell company set up in the Cayman Islands, blocked the acquisition of a patent Techsearch was attempting to acquire. See our story last week: Intel bang to rights on questionable business ethics We spoke to a representative of Techsearch LLC today and he confirmed his company had started a defamation suit against Intel. He said: "That suit is based on remarks made by an Intel representative in the Wall Street Journal article." The original patent suit against Intel was filed in June 1998, he added. An Intel UK representative confirmed the details of the litigation. He said: "Clearly there is a litigation case and Intel will defend it vigorously. We strongly disagree with aspersions that our business has been conducted unethically in any way whatsoever." ®
