Rambus yesterday claimed small wins in its network of legal spats with Hynix and Micron.

Hynix, Micron and other "co-conspirators" - as Rambus put it - had asked the San Francisco Superior Court to dismiss the antitrust legal action brought against them by the memory technology developer, which alleges they colluded to drive its RDRAM product out of the market. The Court decided not to throw the case out.

Separately, Rambus' patent infringement allegations against Hynix, which are being heard in the US District Court of Northern California, will continue after Judge Ronald Whyte "tentatively" denied a request from Hynix to dismiss the case.

Finally, the US District Court of Delaware denied a motion by Micron requesting an early hearing on its spoliation allegations against Rambus, and to stay the rest of the case, Rambus said. Instead, the Court suspended the current trial and pre-trial schedule in Delaware and directed that all discovery should continue. The Court also said it will review progress in the Hynix case in California, where the allegations made against Hynix mirror those made by Rambus against Micron.

All three cases continue. ®
