Hewlett-Packard Co. announced Friday that it has become the latest computer giant to agree to pay software maker Intergraph Corp. to settle an infringement suit over key patents. A month before the dispute was set to go to trial, HP said it inked a deal to pay Intergraph $141 million in cash. The agreement dismisses all pending litigation between the two companies and provides for cross-licensing of each other's patent portfolios. The two companies had about 10 suits against each other.
