Intel is being sued by Webhire Inc, a firm which describes itself as the "number one choice" in recruiting solutions.

The federal action, filed in the US District Court for the District of Massachusetts - that's Boston to you and me - alleges that Intel breached a contract it had with Webhire. The case was filed on Pearl Harbor Day.

Webhire wants Judge Rya W Zobel, who will preside over the jury case, to award it $150,000 in damages.

The case has been brought under Statute 28:1322, a rather obscure piece of legislation for us Brits, but which seems to allow multinationals like Intel to be treated as individual citizens.

Intel will not comment on matters of litigation unless it feels like doing so. ®
