  • Judge Tosses Apple's Courtroom Showdown with Motorola


    Making headlines in the same way a bad sitcom would on the heels of its cancellation, Apple’s patent-infringement jury trial against Google-owned Motorola Mobility has been "cancelled" by the presiding judge.

    The trial was set to begin next week on June 11th (just as WWDC is getting underway). But earlier today, U.S. Circuit Judge Richard A. Posner rejected each side’s damages arguments, according to the developing story across the Bloomberg newswire.

    “You have to prove injury,” Posner bluntly told Apple and Google at the recent pretrial conference. “I’m sorry that it seems to be petering out like this.”

    Posner’s ruling scraps what would have been the first patent trial between them since Mountain View, California-based Google completed its $12.5 billion acquisition of Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc. last month.
    For now, neither Apple or Google has publicly responded to the judge's action. And so it isn't clear if and how the warring parties will regroup and possibly square off again in a different judicial venue. But prior to today's surprise trial toss, Apple claimed Motorola had violated several of Apple's mobile phone and tablet-related patents. Motorola, on the other hand, was pursuing only one patent infringement claim against Apple.

      If you look up Android in the dictionary the definition is cheap and plastic.
