NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) - BlackBerry maker Research in Motion was dealt a setback Monday after the Supreme Court turned down a request to review a major patent infringement ruling against it.

The move takes away yet another barrier between BlackBerry users and service interruptions. There are more than 4 million users of the BlackBerry e-mail service.

Research In Motion (RIM) had petitioned the Supreme Court to review a federal appeals court ruling that could lead to a shutdown of most U.S. BlackBerry sales and service.

The High Court's decision puts NTP's damages award and request for a permanent injunction back in front of the district court, said Jonathan Caplan, a partner in the intellectual property department at Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel.

This could be bad news for Blackberry users everywhere. They keep coming close to a settlement, but nothing ever seems to happy. I know a lot of people that use a Blackberry, and this would hurt them a lot if they were to shut down.
