First the Unabomber and now Steve Jobs

You know you may have bad luck when you open up a package which was mailed by unabomber Ted Kaczynski and smoke starts to come out of it followed by a flash. Yale Professor David Gelernter survived a horrific attack from the deranged madman and the good news is the company he co-founded won a settlement for patent infringement from Apple worth $625M.

A happy ending to a terrible story right?

Not quite... Today TMCnet reported that the settlement was overturned and instead of having to pay $625M, Apple would have to pay a total of zero. This is an unusual occurrence according to Southern Methodist University law professor Bill Dorsaneo, overturning a verdict like this and eliminating instead of reducing the amount of an award is unusual.

This is a story of pretty bad luck it seems and the professor has vowed to fight on. Heaven knows this poor man has been through worse.
