rejected an antitrust lawsuit filed by Rambus against
The ruling by the Superior Court of the State of
California confirmed a November jury decision. Last
In November, a San Francisco jury ruled that Hynix
and its U.S. peer Micron Technology were not
involved in illegal actions to prevent Rambus from
expanding into the chipmaking market.
"Hynix welcomes the ruling and will do its best to
make an argument for potential appeals," Hynix said
in a statement. Rambus is allowed to make an appeal
within 60 days.

technology from making a footing in the chipmaking
Samsung Electronics reached a settlement with Rambus
in 2010, in which Samsung would pay Rambus $700
million through 2015.
