Judge Spencer today resumed hearing NTP's patent infringement case against RIM as scheduled. NTP was first to make its plea, asking for $126 million in damages, and undisclosed settlement amount, and a shutdown of Blackberry service after a 30-day grace period until a settlement is reached. RIM will present its case next, followed by the US Government lawyers. NTP's council is suggesting RIM be forced to pay the damages immediately. The company is under the gun as the USPTO has now begun issuing final rejections of NTP's patents. If all patents are rejected, it will be difficult for NTP to demand payment for violation of invalid patents. Despite the Dept. of Justice and USPTO's efforts, many analysts believe that the judge will issue an injunction against RIM.
