Sean Royall on Rambus Inc.

InformationWeek reports Mr. Royall's sound bite:

"This does send a clear signal that companies can't expect to engage in willful conduct to deceive standards groups without [legal] consequences," said Sean Royall, a former FTC official who now heads the antitrust practice at the law firm Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher. "This is a precedent-setting case."
Mr. Lavelle in a written statement:

"We are nevertheless disappointed that the Commission's remedy ... continues to ignore the extensive findings of fact made by its own Chief Administrative Law Judge McGuire," Tom Lavelle, senior vice president and general counsel for Rambus, said in a statement.
Any Donkey while recycling oats:

Mr. Royall, would you be so kind as to review your employment history with the farm animals? Some of my neighbors think you need to, well, you know, engage in some recycling . . . .

Hey Treowth,

Just like this dope to crack public with some self-serving comment about the FTC Rambus remedy.

The bonehead is still looking for vindication since Judge McGuire embarrassed his sorry ass with a defeat on all counts after his dismal trial prosecution of Rambus.

Precedent setting?? Sure, just until the federal courts act on Rambus's imminent appeal. Then, Mr. Royall's case will be an asterisk in the FTC History Book as the longest and most expensive failed action in the agency's illustrious past.

Just my opinion.

Hoping that asterisk arrives sooner than Barry Bonds'asterisk . . .
