NTP v. Research-in-Motion: Supreme Court Denies Stay

NTP v. Research-in-Motion

After the CAFC denied RIM’s request to stay proceedings pending an appeal to the Supreme Court, RIM took its argument directly to new Chief Justice John Roberts — asking him to stay the issuance of an injunction pending the outcome of the Canadian company’s petition for writ of certiorari.  Roberts denied that request without comment and trading of RIM’s stock was again halted.
