If he allowed a one day damages trial, he is essentially nullifying the jury ruling. I would assume he would rather issue a statement with regard to any overruling of the jury award. He may decide not to over rule at all but rather elevate the 3.5% to cover the difference. I have to believe that any ruling less than 5 years at 3.5% and 20.9% (net) is going to get an appeal from VRNG.
Precisely, golong4201. He would rather get a mullet then overrue himself. Market agrees. Also, brucea76, right on too. IMO, he will increase ongoing royalties and avoid any hassles with reversing latches.
