LOS ALTOS, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES – 10/07/2008 – Rambus Inc. (Nasdaq:RMBS), one of the world’s premier technology licensing companies specializing in high-speed memory architectures, today announced that the United States Supreme Court has denied Samsung’s request for review in the case stemming from the Federal District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia (EDVA).

In previous rulings, EDVA Judge Robert E. Payne held that the case with Samsung was “exceptional” and attempted to make certain factual findings against Rambus relating to alleged destruction of documents. In April, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) issued a ruling vacating the order instructing that Samsung’s claims against Rambus be dismissed. With today’s Supreme Court order, all appeals have been exhausted and the matter is now closed.
