If I am remembering everything correctly this is why:
Spencer is ruling on RIM's last possible appeal. RIM already lost this suit back in 2002 and this is their final appeal as the supreme court denied RIM's request to escalate it to them.
Now I'm no expert on the legal system but I would think that you should be able to win an appeal if information comes to light that proves you never should have lost in the first place. Personally I think Spencer came off sounding like an ass. I mean come on, you're a judge, this is your job. If you are gonna get pissy about people asking you to do your job then maybe you shouldn't be in that job. Still I'm fairly confident that justice will fall flat on it's face and that RIM will lose the appeal even in the face of this new evidence. I doubt the injunction will ever make it to the enforcement phase though.
