Patent Stupidity of the day

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry over this one..

A company sues Cisco for infringing a patent. Just one problem, they filed the suit the day before the patent was granted!

It then appears they realise their faux pas and so persuade someone at the court to alter the docket to the day after, so it will match the patent issuance date!

With much thanks to the excellent Patent Troll Tracker blog for the news and to Dennis Crouch’s Patently-O blog for the complaint.
