Lost Emails Could Haunt Intel in Antitrust Case with AMD

In its antitrust suit with chipset rival Advanced Micro Devices Inc., Intel may have lost relevant emails and, as a result, face unwanted complications in its defense case. The company has already produced over 17 million pages of documents, but emails were lost as a result of the company’s email backup tape rotation schedule, which copied over employee email every 35 days. In connection with preservation duties, the new Federal Rules of Civil Procedure expect companies to suspend the “routine, good faith operation” of such systems or risk a variety of sanctions.
