SAP Rejected by Supreme Court Over $391 Million Loss

The U.S. Supreme Court let stand a $391 million judgment against computer software maker SAP AG in a patent-infringement dispute over database management tools.

The justices today, without comment, turned away an appeal filed by the largest maker of business-management software. The company had argued that an appeals court changed the rules on how to determine infringement and should have put the case on hold until a separate review of the validity of the patent was resolved.
