    It appears BlackBerry has voluntarily dismissed its lawsuit against Twitter after approximately 9 months. I can't find specifics on the dismissal, but I saw this website: https://www.pacermonitor.com/public/...v_Twitter,_Inc

    Does anyone have any more information regarding the dismissal?

    They had little to no chance of winning, due to the Alice laws which determine if a software patent was unpatentable under US Patent Law. Easier to just dismiss.

    ^^ That's a Paywall but you can sign up for a free trial. You also could sign up for the free trial at pacermonitor and it would have given you the details.

    tl;dr: Some of the patents got invalidated or were flimsy enough to believe they would lose, so they pulled out.

    In the front page of the dismissal it only sites 4 patents. BlackBerry alleged that Twitter violated way more than that. It may be a partial dismissal of the patents impacted by Alice.

    Probably, that would be why Law360 says they were 'trimmed'. I'm out of good emails for trials.
