By Chang-Ran Kim and Miyoung Kim TOKYO (Reuters) – Partners Toshiba Corp of Japan and SanDisk Corp of the United States separately filed civil lawsuits against South Koreas SK Hynix Inc, seeking damages over the suspected theft of data related to their flagship flash memory chip technology used in smartphones and tablet computers. SK Hynix said on Friday it had not yet received the litigation and had no comment to make. Hynix competes with both Toshiba and SanDisk, partners in flash memory technology for nearly 15 years, in supplying chips to device makers. The moves follow the arrest by Tokyo police on Thursday of a former SanDisk engineer suspected of improperly providing technical data to Hynix, where he later worked.
