- Apple (AAPL), Google (GOOG), Intel (INTC) and Adobe (ADBE) agreed to pay $324M to settle an antitrust class-action suit accusing them of creating illegal no-hire agreements in Silicon Valley to keep wages down, Reuters reports.
- The amount is far less than the $3.4B in damages that 64,000 employees were collectively seeking. That figure could have tripled had the case gone to trial and the workers won.
- The deal was disclosed yesterday, although financial terms weren't provided.
