    Default Judge in GT Advanced Technologies Bankruptcy Case Doesn't See the Need for Secrecy


    According to recent reports from the folks over at Reuters, Judge Boroff questioned the need to grand Apple’s motion to seal documents in the ongoing GT Advanced bankruptcy proceedings. Boroff said the following regarding the matter:

    I've got a foot-high stack of documents, and it can't be that it all must be sealed.
    Apple is arguing that evidence and its filed objections include sensitive research and development details along with secret business dealings that need to be kept out of the public’s view. A bit of information which was already revealed as part of GTAT’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing were Apple’s supplier non-disclosure agreements, for which there appears to be a $50 million penalty for each instance of leaking details about an unreleased product.

    According to the jurist, Apple is coming off as a disgruntled homeowner who doesn’t seem to be satisfied with results of a construction project. Boroff said the following regarding his analogy:

    I'm seeing what looks incredibly like a construction suit, where a homeowner says to the contractor, 'It didn't come out the way I wanted to,' and the contractor says, 'Well, it would have come out that way if you didn't continue to change the specifications.’
    Although the details remain unknown, rumors claim that Apple wasn’t happy with the quality of GTAT’s sapphire material yield. Furthermore, the production goals required for payment weren’t being met either. The Cupertino California company even tried to help GTAT qualify for the last $139 million payment but the company still felt short of meeting te requirements. On its behalf, GTAT stated that contracts with Apple were “oppressive and burdensome.”

    We’ll have to wait and see what happens going forward. As of right now GT Advanced Technologies has announced plans to wind down plant operations at its sapphire production facilities and Apple appears to be dedicated to keeping jobs at its Mesa, Arizona sapphire plant.
