I am a huge fan of RIM's system and it has become my chosen career path to support it, but I must admit that I have to agree with one of the things that Carterofmars said and that is that RIM is probably going to lose in this round of the fight! The judge seems to have a very narrow focus in this matter and he is completely focused on the previous jury verdict that he presided over 3 years ago. I believe his decision will not be favorable to RIM because of several factors- First he refused to hear the DOJ request to postpone any injunction, second, his comments to the lawyers and particularly to the RIM lawyers were that they should have reached a business agreement instead of making him give a legal decision, third, although the Patent office has rejected the infringement claims, even if he wanted to, the judge could not make any quantitative decision based on this until NTP exhausts their appeals, finally, the judge made repeated references to the fact that he is there to assess damages based on the previous jury verdict and at this point, which RIM lost.

I just hope the decision is swift and not crippeling to RIM.

It's silly, when you stop and think, that a company that makes no revenue from RIM if it is shutdown(see bankruptcy laws), and a company that has a lion's share of a multi-billion dollar industry can't come to some sort of an equitable decision so that we can all just move on with our lives!

The judge is narrowly focused because that's the issue he has to decide on. He cannot re-try the case.

Kinda makes me wonder about the IT security of a company that would let it's users use a Treo 700w without MSFP. You'd be willing to let company information reside on a device without the ability to enforce password usage on it?

But seriously, this forum is entitled "RIM Stock/Legal Discussion" and that's why I am using the ticker name...

But back to the post subject...RIMM kinda painted itself into a corner here.
