Would you buy a Bible from this man? If any family embodies Judeo-Christian values of honesty, charity, and humility, surely it’s the Trumps.
Twenty years for witness tampering? That’s what the law allows — and, boy, would it ever seem to apply here.
Finding the 20%: “A message for new members of Congress: You can get along. Here’s how.” Finding common ground while standing your own.
Okay, I’m only about 12 years old at heart, so I can’t resist noting that the ParkerVision / Intel trial is slated to begin February 6 . . . 33 days from now.
Intel called for PRKR’s claim of “willfulness” to be dismissed, but that request was denied, which means that if the jury finds in PRKR’s favor — as a different jury in a different case before a different judge did to the tune of $173 million ten years ago — the judge could as much as triple it.
It could go horribly wrong: the jury could find in Intel’s favor. Or the judge could just throw out their verdict as the judge in the Qualcomm case did 10 years ago (no $173 million after all). Or he could be hit by a bus. So this bet, like so many, is only for money you can truly afford to lose.
But it could also go wonderfully right: a large jury award multiplied by a penalty for willfulness, brightening prospects for the second Intel suit later this year (for a different set of patent violations) and for a new Qualcomm trial . . . followed by PRKR’s getting back to productive, potentially profitable work, as described here.
Christmas is coming (again). Will we get a lump of coal? A pot of gold?
Keeps life interesting, at the very least.
