Hayes rejected arguments raised by plaintiff Christopher Lorenzo in his amended complaint and affirmed his prior ruling that Lorenzo lacked standing to bring antitrust claims. As to the plaintiff's other claims, the court affirmed that the allegations in the complaint did not give him any right to compensation from Qualcomm under California's unfair competition law.
