Below is an excerpt:

A California federal judge on Thursday refused to sanction either Sony Corp.’s PlayStation unit or a patent holder accusing it of infringing a system that makes 3-D real estate images, finding that neither party had filed a frivolous pleading.

U.S. District Judge Paul S. Grewal, denying sanctions motions by both Sony and Rothschild Digital Media Innovations LLC, decided that a Markman hearing and full claim construction are required before he determines whether the case is frivolous, as Sony has contended.
