European Union – Rules on competition. The General Court of Justice of the European Union dismissed the action by Intel Corp (Intel) for annulment of Commission Decision C(2009) 3726 final of 13 May 2009 relating to a proceeding under art 82 [EC] and art 54 of the European Economic Area Agreement or, alternatively, annulment or reduction of the fine imposed on Intel. The General Court decided that both Intel's arguments for annulment of that decision and its arguments that the fine at issue was disproportionate were without merit.
