Judge denies NY attempt to amend Intel lawsuit

May 13, 2011 RANDALL CHASE , AP Business Writer

(AP) -- A federal judge in Delaware is rejecting a bid by New York's attorney general to amend an antitrust lawsuit against Intel.

New York officials alleged in a 2009 lawsuit that Intel had paid billions of dollars in kickbacks to in order to dominate the market for computer and had retaliated against those who did too much business with its competitors.

New York recently sought permission to amend the complaint to clarify what it said were state law claims made on behalf of all consumers, including small and medium businesses.

But in a ruling Thursday, the judge agreed with Intel Corp. that the initial complaint did not cover small and medium businesses, and that adding them now would be unfairly prejudicial to Intel while upsetting the case schedule.
