opinion will be disclosed, Robart wrote on Monday.
Before trial began on Tuesday, Robart said in court that he wanted to take the most expansive interpretation of the public's right to know. Several outside companies besides Microsoft and Motorola, like Research in Motion Inc, have also asked him to keep secret their royalty deals.
Robart said he would consider a request to refer to those third party companies by code names, known only to the lawyers and the judge.
The case in U.S. District Court, Western District of Washington is Microsoft Corp. vs. Motorola Inc., 10-cv-1823.
