Ever alert for the stray oat in every dunghill, Ming notes that in the current Markman, Judge Davis indicated he would release his claim definitions first and follow that with a written opinion so as to expedite the parties return to mediation.
Then turning to the Transcript of the Markman Hearing of 2/17/2009, released on 4/13/2009 vis a vis the Microsoft case, on page 113, the same Judge Davis concludes; "The Court: All right. Very well. All right. Thank you very much for your excellent arguments. The matter is submitted, and we will get you an opinion as soon as we can."
To the impressionable Ming, the current Markman connotes a greater sense of resolve and even alacrity and presents itself more like the penultimate action prior to a resolution.
Why oh why didn't Ming collect and cash in more deposit bottles so he could acquire even more VHC?
