US - NTP slaps Palm with patent infringement suit

(CNET News)
After settling with Blackberry maker earlier this year, NTP's lawyers are now going after Palm's wireless e-mail devices. Palm's Treo smart phones are likely the intended target of NTP's lawsuit. NTP is looking for an injunction on the sale of Palm products that allegedly violate its patents, as well as monetary damages. NTP settled a legal ordeal with RIM earlier this year for $612.5 million, after alleging that RIM's BlackBerry devices and wireless e-mail service infringed on NTP's patents.
