IBM Seeks to Interview Apple Execs In Papermaster Case

IBM seeks information directly from Apple’s top line executives regarding the ongoing Papermaster lawsuit, which IBM hopes to win in order to prevent Papermaster from joining Apple Inc.

The ongoing saga has grown tiresome in the last few weeks. In a nutshell, Apple has seemingly poached Mark Papermaster, a skilled chip design guru, from IBM. Big blue was not too fond of this, so they filed a lawsuit hoping to prevent Papermaster from joining Apple Inc.

Computerworld explains: IBM has asked for information from several unnamed senior officials at Apple Inc. as part of the discovery process in the lawsuit to block a former executive from joining Apple, according to court documents made public yesterday.

Those documents also revealed that the federal judge overseeing the case denied IBM’s request to postpone the trial while awaiting a decision from an appellate court.

As Cult of Mac notes, “Papermaster, a 26-year executive of the technology company, has asked his former employer to provide “all documents since 2006″ regarding IBM business planning and the server business, according to the report.” Additionally, IBM has failed to delay the ongoing trial until a decision is made regarding Papermaster’s appeal. The trial is set to begin on or prior to February 24, 2009.

As the Papermaster case evolves, we will provide coverage of notable news that unfolds. The entire case will be entering a series of back and forth negotiations over the next few weeks, and most of what we here will not be substantial information.

Just tell us what happens after or during the trial. Everything until then is insignificant.
