As you will recall, earlier this month a federal jury in Alexandria, Virginia, found that Vonage’s internet telephone service infringes Verizon patent claims and awarded Verizon $58 million plus future royalties.  Yesterday, the trial judge said he would issue a permanent injunction against further infringement but would wait two weeks so he can consider Vonage’s motion to stay the injunction pending appeal to the Federal Circuit.  U.S. District Judge Claude Hilton set a hearing on the stay motion for March 30, 2007.
