Submission + - Judge Make Lawyers Pay For Frivolous Patent Suit

Gallenod writes: The Denver Post (http://www.denverpost.com/popular/ci_8354619) has an article about the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals upholiding the decision of a Federal judge who threw out and reversed a jury decision in favor of a patent infringement claim and ordered the plaintiff's lawyers to pay the defendents' court costs. U.S. District Senior Judge Richard P. Matsch sanctioned the plaintiff's attorneys for "cavalier and abusive" misconduct and for having a "what can I get away with?" attitude during a 13-day patent infringement trial in Denver. With the Appeals Court in agreement, could this case be the "shot heard round the world" in the revolution against patent trolls?
