Court Refuses to Retry RIM Case
Oct 7, 2005, 4:49 PM by (staff)
A US Court of Appeals today rejected RIM's request to retry NTP's patent suit in front of a full 12 judge panel. The court issued a patent infringement ruling against RIM in August, but the company immediately requested the court reconsider their case while simultaneously freezing further development of their $450 million settlement offer with NTP. The case now returns to a lower court for consdieration. Previously the courts have knocked down the number of NTP patents the suit covers from 16 to 11 to 7. The US Patent Office recently rejected all 7 of these patents in an initial ruling. However if the court refuses to re-hear the case, RIM still may be forced to pay NTP or face an injunction against selling Blackberries in the US.
