XYZ 2, Verisign 0

I am baffled why Verisign let this case go so far. I understand that they wanted to burn their competitors money. I also understand that they wanted to intimidate the industry. I also understand that they wanted to protect their brand. All very logical. All good business reasons for filing the suit. But, this was a clearly weak case that they should have known at least by the end of discovery they were going to lose. Why not just drop it or settle? Why risk a judge coming out with a ruling like this? XYZ still would have burnt a bunch of money and everyone would have been intimidated. Now every competitor knows with certainty that they can make all these kinds of statements against .com. Was Verisign just being irrational? Dug themselves into a hole and too stubborn to reverse course? Bad legal advice?
