Judge James L. Robart Serves as a Model for His Colleagues in Microsoft-Motorola Patent Licensing Case

At the Seattle Times at Microsoft Prio, technology reporter Janet I. Tu reports that Judge reserves ruling in Microsoft-Motorola case; calls both companies' legal maneuvering arrogant writing inter alia about U.S. District Court Judge James L. Robart:
"Robart also had some strong words for both parties: "The court is well aware it is being used as a pawn in a global, industry-wide business negotiation."

The conduct of both Microsoft and Motorola, he said, "has been driven by an attempt to secure commercial advantage. To an outsider looking at it, it has been arbitrary, it has been arrogant and frankly it has been based on hubris." [emphasis added by LawPundit]
This appears to be one of those rare judges who definitely has a correct understanding of what is going on in the patent wars.

The legal system is being used as a pawn,
exactly as Judge Robart describes it.

So how do we get the U.S. Congress and the United States Supreme Court to understand that fact and to put an end to government resources being used indiscriminately as pawns because of bad lawmaking and bad judging?

That is the real problem.
