Google and Oracle settlement talks fail; dispute now heads back to court
With Google already announcing that it would use the open source JavaJDK with Android N, both sides decided to sit down prior to the trial to see if they could hash things out. After sitting and talking together for six hours, a settlement unfortunately could not get hammered out. No future settlement talks are scheduled.
This was actually the second attempt by Google and Oracle to settle the case out of court. But as the court pointed out after the latest settlement failure, "some cases just need to be tried." This is apparently one of them. Now, both sides will return to court next month to see which one of them can get a jury to see things in its favor.
