I'm not optimistic about DEC's chances of winning the suit.
I just noticed they asked for a *jury* trial.
-Hire a certain famous Southern California legal
-Seat only jurors who don't read papers, watch TV, and
have never heard of computers. "Chips? They're great
with sour-cream and onion dip."
-Claim that Andy Grove was "In yard practicing golf swing"
when the alleged patent infringements were supposed
to have occurred.
-Show how DEC could have planted incriminating evidence
back in 1991 during early licensing talks with Intel.
-Prove that despite denials under oath of ever having
used "en" word, in fact Robert Palmer frequently said
he envied Andy Grove.
-Demonstrate in dramatic courtroom scene (Pentium
Pro chip struggles to fit Digital design into silicon)
that Intel could not have infringed on DEC's patents.
"If the algorithm don't fit, you must acquit!" declares
leader of Intel defense team.
This followed by live shots of Palmer driving his white Porsche
on Route 128, mumbling into his car phone about suicide, as he's
pursued by angry DEC stockholders.
