Judge plans hearing in Quantum-Imation suit

A California Superior Court judge for Santa Clara County will hold a hearing Oct. 26 to review a request from storage hardware maker Quantum that a preliminary injunction be imposed to stop competitor Imation from selling backup tapes using the DLT format that haven't been qualified by Quantum, the company said in a statement. Imation and Quantum are in the middle of dueling lawsuits over the tapes. Imation alleges Quantum has a monopoly on the DLT format and is using its power to fix prices. Quantum denies the claim and countersued, arguing that Imation's DLT cartridges haven't passed Quantum's qualification tests and that Imation misappropriated trade secrets.
