Supreme Court Denies Patent Troll Appeal Against Apple
Mirror Worlds LLC, which officially stopped operations back in 2004 and converted to a patent troll since, won a $625M award against Apple in a Texas court. Apple appealed and had that overturned in a Federal Court. Mirror Worlds LLC appealed to the Supreme Court, but they have decided not to hear the case so that the ruling of the Federal Court stands.
That's $625M that gets to stay in Apple's bank account for paying dividends to share holders.
