I'm sure the fact that RIM was found guilty by a jury and appealed the guilty verdict all the way up to the US Supreme Court did not influence anything.
RIM signed a settlement. That was their choice.
Speedy justice? This case is almost 5 years old and should have been settled years ago. RIM and NTP were both stubborn. RIM could have settled this for $10 million a few years ago.
Get some facts first before you call for action.
