Toshiba asks the court to reject the request to Western Digital to the introduction of the ban on the sale of semiconductor production
Toshiba has addressed in court with the request to reject the request of the company Western Digital on the prohibition of sale of semiconductor production Toshiba. According to Toshiba, the ban is beyond the jurisdiction of the court, and when entered, can cause irreparable harm.
Recall that SanDisk, a subsidiary company Western Digital, Toshiba is a partner in the joint venture producing flash memory. According to Western Digital, trying to sell the production without her consent, Toshiba is violating the terms of a joint venture agreement. To prevent the sale, Western Digital asked the court to enter a preliminary injunction, which will await the decision of the arbitration.
In the documents filed by Toshiba in the California Supreme court, it is argued that the proportion of SP corresponds to only a small part of the business for the production of flash memory, and the main place of business is Japan, so the American court has no right to prohibit the sale.
Court hearing scheduled for July 14. It is expected that Western Digital will have time before the hearing to respond to the request Toshiba.
