Apple wants battery maker lawsuit thrown out

Apple has asked a Massachusetts judge to dismiss a lawsuit by electric battery maker A123 claiming Apple poached that company’s employees, according to Reuters. Last week Apple asked for an extension in the case, saying the companies were exploring a settlement, but a document filed Tuesday has Apple asserting that A123 hasn’t provided enough evidence to justify legal action. “Apple hiring five A123 employees, without more, does not indicate improper means or motive to support a claim for tortious interference or ‘raiding,’” Apple said in the filing.
