RIM received some favorable news yesterday, however none of it is likely to affect the upcoming trial set for the 24 of this month. NTP's final patent was declared invalid by the USPTO in a non-final judgement. Although all five remaining patents have been overturned in non-final judgements, the final judgements could still be months away and the district court judge does not have to consider no-final rulings in the trial. The Department of Justice also stepped in again yesterday, requesting that the judge not issue any injunction without first consulting the DOJ. The DOJ has a number of requests that the judge and RIM comply with before any injunction is issued, including a period of discovery for how a shutdown would affect Blackberry users and interested parties from wireless carriers to government agencies and emergency responders.
