Apple to sue Motorola?

MacBidouille posts rumors that Apple may be planning on seeking legal action against Motorola due to the halting of development of the "G5".

According to the French site, Motorola was contractually bound to provide Apple a year's lead time before stopping development of the processor. That, on top of millions in wasted research dollars are the grounds for the potential suit.

The complaint will not be filed until after the release of the 970, per MacBidouille, as not to cause an immediate drop confidence in Apple's ability to manufacture faster machines.

MacBidouille has been very vocal regarding rumors of Apple's use of the IBM PowerPC 970 chip. They claim it will be announced at WWDC in June.
