Federal jury says Google didn't infringe on Oracle patents in developing Android
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' A federal jury in San Francisco has decided that Google didn't infringe on Oracle's patents when the search company developed its popular Android software for mobile devices.
Wednesday's verdict comes about two weeks after the same jury, with two additional members, failed to agree on a pivotal issue in Oracle's copyright-infringement case against Google. As a result, Google Inc. faced maximum damages of only $150,000 ' not the hundreds of millions of dollars that Oracle Corp. was seeking.
The judge presiding over the case dismissed the jury and skipped the planned damages phase of the trial.
