This article seems to sum up some key points: It's not just the U.S. Legal System to blame, but also a quot;dysfunctional" patent system. (Actually, Mr. Hiltzik asserts that the USPTO is "understaffed" and "underfunded"—likely explaining how bogus patents all-to-often get by them.) I agree. If the USPTO hadn't granted the patents to Apple, then this lawsuit mess wouldn't have happened to begin with.
Of course, now there appears to be all sorts of legal criticism in how the verdict was reached (did the Jury actually read all 100 pages of instructions?).
