Vringo's last 9 page plea to the Judge which chronologically layed out the entire case was thair last hope IMO
in an effort to sway the judge into ruling. Unfortunately JJ is now bound to listen to the evidence brought forward by defendants regardless of a victory for Vringo according to a jury. As soon as Laches were thrown out it relieved Vringo of ever retrieving any past damages and started the new timeline for Google's new process. It may very well destroy all chances of Vringo ever seeing a dollar of Lang's patents they own !
