Lexar files ITC complaint against Toshiba over NAND flash memory

Lexar Media Inc. filed a complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission [ITC] on April 11, 2006 that seeks to bar import and sale of some Toshiba Corp. NAND flash memory chips.

Lexar's ITC complaint comes a year after a court in California found Toshiba guilty of a number of actions including theft of trade secrets. The court ordered Toshiba to pay Lexar about US$465 million in compensation. In December last year Toshiba succeeded in winning a reconsideration of the damages claim and filed an appeal seeking to overturn the original guilty verdict.
