This will be an interesting lawsuit. Rumor has it that Microprobe was able to take over signficant business from Formfactor. Formfactor has the history and plenty of IP. If you look at the patents indicated above, there are some fairly specific claims. I'd put my beans in the FormFactor basket on this one but even if they "win," the court still has to award signficant damages.
