Farnan [concluded] that he lacked jurisdiction over AMD's claims based on conduct and harm that took place outside the United States.
"AMD has not demonstrated that the alleged foreign conduct of Intel has direct, substantial and foreseeable effects in the United States which gives rise to its claim," Farnan wrote in an 18-page opinion.
At best, he said AMD's allegations described activity that might have had "ripple effects" in the United States, but not enough to give rise to an antitrust claim.
The case will go to trial in 2009. No kidding -- 2009.
