Oracle loses bid to resurrect 3rd patent against Android
Judge Alsup was apparently not amused by the attempt to twist his own words, and ruled just a little while ago that Oracle may not reintroduce the ‘702, or “Gosling” patent back into the case. Worse for Oracle, they were basically told that this is on them; since Oracle was the one who requested the terms of the deal, the judge essentially indicated they will “just have to live with” having the Gosling patent dismissed with prejudice, meaning they can never again assert it against Google in a court of law.
The relevant part of the ruling says:

Oh, and Oracle toad Florian Mueller was just referring to this patent as a phoenix risen from the ashes. Seems like he's pulling crap from his arse again and putting the old positive spin on it.

He actually had two posts on it, including one today that he managed to update quickly after it was tweeted that the judge "would be considering it". It'll be interesting to see what (if anything) is said about the ruling now that it's out.

ya, i read that post. He couldn't stop talking about how Oracles claims are valid and there was no way the judge would dismiss it. Then he did. Really calls into question not only his bias, but his "expert analyst" title. Wasn't it steve jobs who said analysts are all full of s**t?

Florian Mueller is garbage....and some folks look to his analysis as gospel...lol.
Some of us in these forums around the net probably do a better job than he does.

Memo to Larry - be careful of what you ask for. You might actually get it.
Time to wave buh bye to Google, as the Android ship is pulling away from the Oracle dock.
