from John Lothian..... Trading Technologies Espeed Lawsuit Preliminary Injunction Denied, but Judge Supports TT Patents' Validity Bloomberg's Ann Saphir broke the story this morning about Trading Technologies' preliminary injunction request in a lawsuit against Espeed being denied. However, Northern District of Illinois Judge James B. Moran issued a strong validation of TT's patents and their validity. The motion for the injunction was denied "for now," leaving open the subject could be revisited if Espeed chooses to confront TT in the marketplace and causes irreparable harm. According to an industry source, the judge "basically dismissed all the defendants (Espeed) arguments and upheld TT's patents and the validity of their patents."
