Late last year on the day of handing down a ruling on non infringement in favour of the defendants a strange thing happened. Two hours before the court opened and his honours ruling handed down a dramatic 40% drop in the loosing plaintiffs share price occurred. Who benefit in this share market trade? On what basis did it happen? The only event before is the anticipated ruling by Judge Fitzgerald. This being the only event surrounding the company of interest to investors at the time raises the question DID THE JUDGES OFFICE leak to outside counsel or others the decision prior to it being handed down in open Court. Was the office of the Judge part of an illegal stock trade based on insider information? Enough questions surround what happened to raise serious suspicion at the very least.
