eBay must defend Justice Department suit over recruiting -ruling

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept 27 (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Friday refused eBay's attempt to dismiss a U.S. Department of Justice lawsuit over an alleged agreement with Intuit to refrain from recruiting each other's employees.

In a tandem order, U.S. District Judge Edward Davila in San Jose, California, granted eBay's motion to dismiss a parallel lawsuit brought by the state of California.
