Appeals Court Denies En Banc Hearing in Blackberry Patent Case

A federal appeals court on Friday rejected a motion by Research In Motion, Inc. for an en banc hearing in a case where the Blackberry manufacturer was found at trial to have infringed patents.  RIM's next step is an appeal to the United States Supreme Court.

The trial court, in a complicated case, found that RIM infringed on patents held by NTP Inc.  The Patent Office, in a parallel process, has rejected the patents that RIM was supposed to have violated, with the last decision coming last week.

The Washington Post has a story with full details here.
