Another ruling today, the judge didn't dismiss Apple's claim that they own 10 of the 1000 patents, so it looks like all 1000 patents will be auctioned, just 10 of them Apple is going to go after when the new buyer takes over these 10 disputed ones. Ultimately that baggage lessens the price of the portfolio since 10 of the patents will land the new owner in court upon the closing it sounds...
