Injunction Delay Until September?

The National Post quotes an expert as saying that the US Justice Departments concerns about the impact of a BlackBerry service injunction on its users will likely cause the District Court Judge hearing the case to postpone any immediate injuction. The article does not give a reason why but suggests September as the earliest date.

The article notes that will the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has ruled against NTP’s patents, the rulings are not final and the District Court does not need to consider them or wait for the rulings to be final.

Not mentioned is what would happen if the Judge makes a ruling and then the patents are overturned for good.
