An appeals court in Washington has ruled that the patent case brought against HTC by IPCom that was tossed out of court back in 2010 should be given another chance in front of the judge, forcing the companies to return to the courtroom to restate their arguments. The original court decision from 2010 deemed the patent that IPCom was using in its complaint was invalid, but the appeals court now claims that was an incorrect verdict. HTC and IPCom have sued each other in the U.S., the UK, and Germany over the use of the patent, which relates to how a phone finds cellular coverage while moving.source: Bloomberg
