EU Court Adviser Says Intel Antitrust Case Should be Re-Examined

An adviser to the European Union’s highest court has thrown his weight behind Intel Corp.’s appeal against a decision by the bloc’s antitrust regulator to fine the chip maker €1.06 billion ($1.17 billion) for abusing its dominant market position. The adviser to the European Court of Justice said that a lower court erred in its 2014 judgment when it threw out the U.S.-based firm’s appeal to the decision “in its entirety.”
