I think both Nokia an IDCC has told the CAFC to hold the decirion in lieu of a buyout by Nokia/MSFT. Why put out a decision that will hold no relevanceto Nokia if it buys out IDCC? In fact if IDCC won that might ensure a higher bid for IDCC.
Here's my guess. Decision will be announced this Monday. Reason... it's the last week before the clerks are let go. If they're helping judges write the decision, I think the court doesn't want to continue crossover on a new group of clerks. Just my guess, and of course hoping for a reversal and remand which should help the short term PPS pop $10, but more importantly add a Billion or two to the buyout offer we get for IDCC after Labor Day. JMHO.
