AMD Loses Bid for Immediate Halt to S3 Patent Case Against Apple

Advanced Micro Devices Inc. failed to persuade a U.S. judge to halt a patent dispute S3 Graphics Co. has against Apple Inc. at the U.S. International Trade Commission, according to a filing with the trade agency.

AMD, a maker of chips for Apple computers, sued S3 last month, claiming it owned the patents that S3 has asserted against Apple. In an Oct. 28 filing with the ITC, S3 said the federal judge denied a request for an immediate halt to the ITC case. The commission is scheduled to release its final decision on Nov. 15.
