Delayed decision for RIM and NTP 
(en francais)


Basically the Judge told them, go settle this or you're both going to be unhappy when you next come in the court room.


Rim decision prudent: lawyer

Patent lawyer, analyst applaud judge's decision not to impose immediate injunction on BlackBerry service

A U.S. federal judge was prudent to reserve his decision on Research In Motion Ltd.'s long-running patent dispute with NTP Inc. because it turns up the pressure on both sides to try again to reach a settlement, one patent lawyer said.

"I think the judge is obviously sending a strong message to both parties to think long and hard about whether they want to see his decision, because it might not please either party," James Hurst, a patent lawyer at Winston & Strawn LLP in Chicago, told globeandmail.com. "He is just doing what a good judge does."

District Judge James Spencer's move not to order an immediate injunction against RIM's BlackBerry service in the U.S. gives the two sides time to work out an agreement. The judge reserved his decision Friday, and stressed that the patent case should already have been settled and that a damages order may follow shortly.
