I have to agree about how the media is playing this. Our local news radio programming, keeps saying "A federal judge could shut down all BlackBerry service today." It sounds so ominous, and they just can't help themselves.
Not that I'm an expert, but I would imagine that these lawyers are going to be fighting this for more than just today. And even though this Judge wants to get this case off his docket, he's probably going to have to hear at least a couple of days of argument and pretend to think about it before issuing a ruling. Given that, I would think that it will probably be at least another week before he issues a ruling.
