RIM gets stay in Visto case

Research in Motion was granted a stay in a patent infringement case filed by Visto Corp. The case was supposed to begin today in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, however in April RIM requested a stay pending the outcome of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office's reexamination of all five disputed patents. Two of the patents have been rejected but the Patent Office has reconsidered one of those rejections and validated one patent. Visto and RIM are awaiting a final ruling on the other patents and waiting to hear whether or not the Patent Office will reconsider the other final rejection.

Visto alleges that RIM infringed on five of its wireless-synchronization patents and is seeking damages plus a permanent injunction on all infringing RIM products.
