Judge Turns Down Justice Dept. Request To Delay RIM Trial
Feb 21, 2006, 4:25 PM by (staff)
The Federal Judge presiding over the NTP vs. RIM patent dispute today took another step to guarantee the trial will start this Friday as scheduled. Judge Spencer turned down a request by the Federal Justice Department to hold a separate hearing to explore how a Blackberry shutdown could affect government agencies and offices. The hearing would have further delayed the trial, which the judge has noted he will not allow. The Justice Dept. has previously filed two briefs with the court concerning the effects of a shutdown on government and public safety agencies. It is likely those papers provided the judge with all the information he needs regarding the federal government's position and concerns.
