BRUSSELS (Reuters) - U.S. chipmaker Qualcomm QCOM.O has asked Europe's second-highest court to throw out a 997 million euro ($1.2 billion) fine levied by European Union antitrust regulators, citing numerous errors in the EU decision.
The EU competition enforcer’s ruling was marked by errors in procedures and law, Qualcomm said in its appeal to the Luxembourg-based General Court, according to a filing in the Commission’s Official Journal on Monday.
Judges typically take several years to rule on such cases.
Qualcomm is also involved in another EU antitrust case where it has been accused of selling chipsets below cost to drive out British phone software maker Icera, which is now a unit of Nvidia Corp NVDA.O.
The appeal is Qualcomm/Commission T-235/18.
