A federal judge has dismissed part of AMD's suit against Intel on the basis that it does not meet the anticompetative claims made.  In June of 2005 AMD filed a 48 page complaint against Intel alleging the company was engaging in monopolistic behavior by forcing companies (38 different ones cited) into using their chips thus forcing AMD out.

Despite using such tactics as trying to sue deceased people, or even people without a computer, many of their lawsuits have been successful due to folks not wanting to fight the charges.
