Did no one think to argue that the patent should not even be valid as varying placement of buttons is pretty "obvious"?
They weren't arguing what's obvious or the validity of the patent.
The argument was if the patent had been infringed, in this case it had.
As for what a highly reimbursed team of lawyers thought to argue about, I'm sure they covered their bases for this particular lawsuit.
If the next blurb we see says Valve fired its legal team than I'll stand corrected.
