June 10, 2010 - Rambus Inc. has an October 7 court date with Micron and Hynix, the company said on June 9. The patent infringement cases to be reheard involve whether Rambus destroyed documents related to its claims that Micron and Hynix infringed Rambus' patents - an act that would void future collection of damages.

This bad news for Rambus follows a decision by the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) to delay deciding a separate Rambus case against several technology companies until late July.

The cases to be re-argued before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit are Hynix Semiconductor v Rambus, 09-1299 and Micron Technology v Rambus 09-1263.
