Microsoft filed an emergency motion to request that the court waive the requirement for Microsoft to post a bond against the judgment while the case is appealed, a Microsoft said. Judge Leonard Davis handed down about $290 million in fines and blocked the sale of Word. The actual document was filed under seal, so the full contents of the request have not yet been made public. Microsoft was ordered to comply within 60 days, or mid-October. In a statement after the ruling was handed down, a Microsoft spokesman said he was disappointed with the decision. "We believe the evidence clearly demonstrated that we do not infringe and that the i4i patent is invalid. We will appeal the verdict," he said.
