Fate of U.S. BlackBerry Service Goes Back to Court

Peter Kaplan writes for Reuters:

A federal judge may decide on Friday whether to pull the plug on BlackBerry email devices used by millions of Americans as part of a fight over patents for the pocket-sized technology.

U.S. District Judge James Spencer will hear arguments beginning at 9 a.m. EST (1400 GMT) from NTP, which wants the judge to halt U.S. sales and shut down U.S. BlackBerry service. The judge granted such an injunction in 2003 but stayed it pending RIM's appeal.
