(January 11, 2009) According to a report on Reuters, a federal judge has ruled that Rambus' actions in destroying documents from 1998-1999 was “obstructive at best, misleading at worst,” and said that Rambus could not enforce its patents against memory chip maker Micron Technology.

Rambus' stock fell 38% on news of the decision. Rambus plans to appeal the decision by U.S. District Court Judge Sue Robinson of Wilmington, Delaware, saying her ruling was "inconsistent with court findings in California."
