A U.S. Federal court upheld a recommendation to dismiss a lawsuit by NCR Corp. against Palm Inc. and Handspring Inc. ( that alleged the handheld computer makers infringed two NCR patents.

The patents covered portable personal electronic devices.

The dismissal order by the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, U.S. was released by Milpitas, CA, U.S.-based Palm's law firm, Chicago-based McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff.

"It affirms Palm's policy of litigating rather than paying a patent royalty when the patent is not infringed," said Brad Hulbert, a partner with McDonnell Boehnen.

NCR, which makes automated teller machines and retail electronic systems such as bar-code scanners, never used the patents in question to market a portable personal terminal product, Hulbert said.

Dayton, OH, U.S.-based NCR, originally National Cash Register, was not immediately available for comment. (Reuters)
