Canadian handheld maker Research In Motion announced Monday that it had won a favorable judgment in a patent infringement suit filed against it by Glenayre Technologies. According to Research in Motion, a judge in the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of California has dismissed the 2-year-old suit brought by Atlanta-based Glenayre Technologies. The suit contended that Research In Motion violated a Glenayre patent on using dual power supplies to provide different voltages to a handheld device. In a previous interview with The Standard, Research In Motion CEO Jim Balsillie called the suit groundless, and even went so far as to characterize it as an attempt by Glenayre “to shake us down.” Glenayre plans to file a motion for reconsideration with the court. “We are confident of our position in this matter and hope the U.S. District Court will look favorably upon our request for reconsideration,” Eric Doggett, Glenayre President and CEO, said in a statement. In May, Research In Motion filed an unrelated lawsuit against Glenayre. In that case, RIM said Glenayre was infringing on RIM’s single mailbox integration patent, which allows corporate e-mail to be redirected to a handheld device. Meanwhile, Glenayre, which at one time sold two-way paging devices similar to RIM’s popular BlackBerry, has since announced that it is exiting that business all together to focus instead on unified messaging solutions. Nonetheless, Glenayre President and CEO Eric Doggett has characterized RIM’s allegations as groundless. On Wall Street, RIM shares were up 3.21 percent, or 93 cents, to $29.89. Shares of Glenayre were unchanged.
