EU Top Court Orders Re-examination Of Intel Anti-trust Fine

The European Union's highest court on Wednesday backed Intel Corp.'s (INTC) appeal of a 2009 EU antitrust fine, referring the case back to a lower court to re-examine the company's arguments.

The European Court of Justice said the lower court failed to examine whether Intel's rebates to other companies restricted competition.

Intel is among the few companies to have continued a battle against a European Commission fine all the way to the top EU court. The Brussels-based antitrust regulator accused the company of using discounts to hurt Advanced Micro Devices Inc., a decision backed by a lower EU court in 2014.

In 2009, the EU fined Intel 1.06 billion euros saying the chip maker used illegal sales tactics to shut out smaller rival AMD.
