The U.S. Patent Office struck down two more of NTP's patents on wireless email. Only one of NTP's original patents remains, and a decision on the final remaining patent is expected soon. Although it shocked many, RIM's recent announcement that they had not yet settled their patent dispute with NTP is not as surprising in light of NTP's recent defeats. If all the patents are struck down, NTP will no longer have any grounds to sue RIM. NTP still has the right to appeal the Patent Office's decisions, and RIM will probably not be cleared of charges unless those appeals are struck down as well.

Check and check again

I guess RIM wasn't keen on paying out $440 million dollars.
Technically they still have to under their previous agreement. What NTP had a hard time with was the fact that after this 450 Mil pay out, they had no real claims to the patent. They realize the potential of the idea.
So RIM rolled up their sleeve...
