Intel Corp has failed in its bid to remove one of the lead attorneys from the forthcoming Federal Trade Commission’s antitrust lawsuit against the company. Intel had argued that Richard Parker, senior deputy director of the FTC’s bureau of competition, should be disqualified from the case because his former law firm, O’Melveny & Myers, had represented Intel’s rival Advanced Micro Devices Inc in litigation against Intel in 1997, an action which eventually led to the FTC action against Intel. But Judge James Timony ruled that Parker – who had already disclosed his past ties to the FTC – could stay on the case. As part of its plea, Intel said it was worried that the scope of the FTC’s investigation had been widened to include Intel’s relationship with AMD since Parker had become involved. But the Judge said that the focus of the case remained whether Intel had used its market position to put anti-competitive pressure on Intergraph Corp, Compaq Computer Corp and Digital Equipment Corp. The trial begins in Washington on March 9.
