Supremes Squash RIM's Plea Against Injunction

Newly appointed US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts today rejected an emergency petition from Blackberry manufacturer Research In Motion. A lower district court had issued an injunction that would prevent RIM from selling Blackberries in the US, however that injunction was temporarily suspended while RIM appealed the case.
