Nokia files suit once again against Apple while it asks the ITC to ban iPhone imports and more

As far as the courts go, considering the number of attorneys that will be involved, and the propensity of the legal system to move as fast as molasses, it could be some time before anything gets resolved legally. Obviously, a ban on imports can be damaging to Apple and using both the courts and the ITC, Nokia is trying to squeeze Apple and force a settlement.
