A federal jury in San Francisco has found beleaguered BlackBerry maker Research in Motion liable for 147.2 million US dollars in damages for infringing on patents held by Mformation Technologies.


Amar Thakur, a lawyer for Mformation, said that the verdict followed a three-week trial and a week of deliberations by an eight-person jury.
