      What's important about the date is, it demonstrates that 8 failed to take into account the reasoning used by the court, and any additional conditions granted by the court.

      The elements that 8 failed to take into account, exceed the scope of 8, and thus can be used to invalidate 8.  

      By analogy, planning to have enough gas in the tank to drive a given distance doesn't help you if you discover that your car is missing a wheel.
