U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit
Represented Intel in a copyright claim against Advanced Micro Devices regarding imbedded "ICE" microcode in Intel's 80486 microprocessors. District court had stayed a copyright action brought by Intel against AMD pending final state court appellate review of an arbitration proceeding. Case settled after favorable liability decision, resulting in payment of $58 million to Intel and a permanent injunction. In a parallel case about Intel's 80386 microprocessor, we persuaded the Ninth Circuit to reverse a district court's Colorado River stay on behalf of Intel, and the Supreme Court to decline review. 12 F.3d 908 (9th Cir. 1993) cert. denied, 512 U.S. 1205 (1994)"
