Amstrad Plc chairman Alan Sugar has said he is considering suing Seagate Technology Inc for a second time, but this time in the US. Amstrad was awarded damages and interest totaling some 85m pounds last week after Seagate was accused of delivering faulty goods relating to Amstrad’s PC2286 and 2386 seven years ago. Earlier in the year Seagate was ordered to pay $78m in damages (CI No 3,179), the rest of the money being awarded in interest at a further hearing last week. Now Amstrad is considering a new action against Seagate for alleged fraud in order to obtain punitive damages. Seagate has said it will appeal.
