Qualcomm: court grants motion to dismiss lawsuit
SAN DIEGO — Qualcomm Inc. said Tuesday that a California court has granted its motion to dismiss a consumer class-action lawsuit that accused the chip maker of antitrust violations and unfair competition.
Judge William Q. Hayes of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California rejected plaintiff Christopher Lorenzo’s arguments in his amended complaint, standing by his previous ruling that Lorenzo lacked standing on the antitrust allegations.
The court also manintained that Lorenzo’s claims did not give him the right to be compensated by Qualcomm under California’s unfair competition law.
