Judge Posner throws out entire Apple v. Motorola suit

Judge Posner throws out entire Apple v. Motorola suit
Earlier this month Judge Richard Posner of the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, threw out a patent suit between Apple and Motorola saying that neither side could prove that they were damaged by the actions of the other company. And that would have been the end of the case, which had started back in 2010, except that Apple was granted its motion for an injunction hearing and the Judge decided to give both firms a chance to prove that they were damaged enough to require judicial relief.

After hearing from both sides once again, Judge Posner has slammed his gavel down on both Apple and Motorola and has dismissed the case. Of course, the only winners here are the attorneys who walk away with a boatload of money.  For his part, Judge Posner had some rather harsh words for Apple in his order, saying that Apple needs to stop wasting Federal Court assets on what the Judge perceives to be minor violations.Source: TheVerge via AndroidCentral
