Submission + - Vonage's Request for Retrial Denied

rfunches writes: "The New York Times (via Reuters) reports that Vonage's request for a retrial of the patent infringement case brought against the company by Verizon has been denied by a federal appeals court. Vonage had hoped to have the lower court's ruling overturned because of a Supreme Court ruling on Monday. From the article:

"The appeals court said Vonage could cite the new Supreme Court ruling as part of its pending appeal. Vonage had argued that the March 8 infringement verdict in favor of Verizon should be reconsidered after the Supreme Court loosened a crucial legal standard, making it easier to invalidate some patents on the grounds they are obvious inventions."
