Supremes Send Back RIM Case

RIM's only remaining relief in this case can come from the USPTO, which has already indicated that it will most likely reject all of NTP's remaining patents. However RIM could still be held liable for damages if the district court issues a final judgement before NTP's patents are invalidated.
