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.

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.
