Qualcomm Inc. announced that the Supreme Court for the State of New York has dismissed all claims brought by Whale Telecom.

Whale's lawsuit, filed in November 2004, sought over Rs.1,770 crore ($400 million) in damages relating to purported agreements with Qualcomm for services to be performed in the former Soviet Union. The court dismissed the claims on the grounds that they were legally meritless as well as barred by the applicable statute of limitations.

"Qualcomm is gratified that the Court has found Whale's sensationalist and inflated claims to be meritless," said Bill Sailer, senior vice president and legal counsel at Qualcomm.

Whale has not reported any plan to appeal the decision as of press time.
