Judge rules against DOJ request to delay RIM trial

The U.S. District Judge James Spencer, presiding over the patent infringement case between Research in Motion and the patent holder NTP, has rejected the request, made by the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) to hold a separate hearing on how to exempt government agencies and offices from a potential shutdown of the Blackberry service. Thus the judge refused to delay any further the trial, which is scheduled for February 24, 2006. The Justice Department has already expressed its concerns about the effects of a possible shutdown on government users in a brief, filed in the U.S. district court at the beginning of this month, as phonearena.com informed.
