In 2009, Intel was fined billions for alleged anti-competitive behavior. After the EU court reversed the verdict in January, the chip manufacturer is now demanding damages.
This is about damages for a competition penalty that was wrongly imposed by the EU court, as can be seen from an entry that has now been published in the EU Official Journal. In January, the EU General Court annulled a 2009 fine of 1.06 billion euros against Intel (Case T-286/09). The group had provisionally paid the fine and got it back in February of this year. Now he is demanding default interest on the amount.
The company had been accused by the EU Commission of trying to illegally force competitors out of the market. Intel’s claim for damages was filed at the end of April, according to the documents.
