Court of Appeals Denies Blackboard's Rehearing & En Banc Petitions

Notice, Desire2Learn, Oct 16, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

It looks like it's the end of the line for Blackboard in its much-publicized lawsuit against D2L. The court has throuwn out the last of the motions, leaving Desire2Learn as the complete victor. As they write: "The effect? All positive for Desire2Learn:
1. We expect that Judge Clark will dissolve the injunction (he's already suspended it)
2. We'll be receiving repayment of the judgment we paid to Blackboard - plus interest - plus costs associated with the action
3. We're delighted to put this chapter behind us, once and for all!"
