Judge Sherman Christensen hands down his 222 page verdict. He found that both Telex and IBM were guilty for the allegations waged against each other. Telex is awarded $350 million and IBM will be restrained in its ability to market its computer and software bundles. IBM, in turn, is awarded $22 million.
This suit began a witch hunt and other suits against IBM came up. CalComp, Memorex and Marshall Industries filed suits and won over 3 billion from Big blue.
