Amstrad loses Western Digital case

But Seagate had already divvied up

A US jury has found that Western Digital was not guilty of shipping faulty drives to Amstrad in 1989. Amstrad had wanted $140 million in compensation from WD, and had already received compensation from Seagate in an out of court settlement worth over $120 million. Western Digital had always maintained that its hard drives conformed to the specification demanded, and that problems were down to Amstrad designs. The PCs in question were part of Amstrad's ill-fated corporate range of PCs. ®
