Lawsuit claims Qualcomm a monopoly

Because of their control over the CDMA market, the technology for most wireless communications, they can force manufacturers and others to adhere to long term anti-competitive contracts according to the lawsuit.   This isn’t a government investigation so it will be interesting to see the impact of the lawsuit.  Also, they aren’t suing under the federal Sherman act but the federal Clayton act and a bunch of state laws.    Not sure why the plaintiff is taking that approach.
