Apple Inc, Google Inc , Intel Corp and four other technology companies were ordered by a judge to face an antitrust lawsuit claiming they illegally agreed not to poach each other's employees.

US District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California, rejected the companies' bid to dismiss claims brought under the Sherman Act and California state law, in a decision released Wednesday night.

Other defendants in the case included Adobe Systems Inc , Intuit Inc, Walt Disney Co's Pixar unit and Lucasfilm Ltd.
