A US federal judge ordered seven tech companies – Apple, Intel, Adobe, Google, Intuit, Lucasfilm and Pixar – to face private antitrust lawsuit in which they are accused of adhering to secret agreements not to hire each others’ employees. Judge Lucy Koh ruled that the existence of agreements between the various companies that the agreements were signed off at the highest levels by senior executives of each company. The complaint alleges that the companies conspired to make it harder for employees to move to different jobs between the companies, thus limiting their ability to earn higher salaries. The companies had sought to get the case thrown out.
