Sometimes lawyers just amaze me with how fast they can put a lawsuit together. As a matter of fact three different sets (so far) of lawyers have already filed suit against Intel since the news came out this week that their processors had significant vulnerabilities and the fix will slow them down. Anyway, this is going to be interesting over the next several months/years as these lawsuits make it through the court system. I wonder what the relief for consumers is going to be?
Legal experts said consumers would have to prove concrete damages and harm to proceed with claims. But experts also expect that consumer class-action lawsuits may be just one cost Intel will face in the wake of the Meltdown revelations.
