AMD: Intel Destroyed Evidence in Antitrust Case
Posted on: 03/06/2007 07:45 PM

I picked this one up over at DailyTech:
In an unpublished statement to the U.S. District Court of Delaware, AMD alleges Intel allowed the destruction of evidence in pending antitrust litigation.

According to the opening letter of the AMD statement, "Through what appears to be a combination of gross communication failures, an ill-conceived plan of document retention and lackluster oversight by outside counsel, Intel has apparently allowed evidence to be destroyed."

Intel's current email system automatically purges emails sent or received by its employees every 35 days. Senior executive data is purged every 45 to 60 days. Additionally, Intel's backup system recycles every other cycle -- immediately overwriting any backup data during tape rotation.
Well... DUH!
