Intel asks for ATI subpoena

Intel wants ATI subpoena

Intel has asked the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware permission to serve ATI a subpoena, which the company hopes will bolster its antitrust case against rival AMD. Retrieving the documents may reveal how AMD's planned acquisition of ATI will affect Intel's ability to compete in the processor market, according to IDG News. The case began in June of 2005 when AMD filed an antitrust suit against Intel, alleging that the chip giant discouraged PC manufacturers as well as retailers from purchasing AMD chips with its dominance of the x86 microprocessor market.

    Intel wants "permission" to serve a subpoena? Shouldn't that be a court/government kind of action? I mean, Intel wants to see what the competition is up to in terms of competition so it can hold onto it's own market domination.

    Am I understanding this correctly?

    re: Subpoena

    I think what the writer meant was that Intel was basically asking them to issue one.

    Its my understanding that a court must approve a Subpoena, but does not actually issue or serve it. That's left to the lawyers involved.
