Apple and Motorola Appeal Tossed Lawsuit Ruling

Both Apple and Motorola have filed separate appeals looking to reinstate a patent-related lawsuit that was tossed in its entirety. U.S. Circuit Judge Richard Posner last month determined that neither company could adequately prove damages for the alleged patent infringement, and neither was entitled to injunctive relief. Posner dismissed the case, which was to be argued in front of a jury. Now that Motorola is owned by Google, it would have been the first time Apple and Google faced one another in court directly over smartphone patents. It is not clear if or how the case could be resurrected.

Weren;t they dismissed 'with prejudice'?

And doesn't that mean that you can't file an appeal? The lawsuit has been determined to be completely without merit and it's over, done, get on with your life already?

Apparently, I', not as up to speed on the legal lingo as I thought I was.....what the hell does 'with prejudice' mean then?

Arguing Children

Is what I think of when I hear this.

The case was DISMISSED. TOSSED. You want to go back into a room to yell and argue with eachother over patents that really, in the end, mean nothing to humankind at all ?

I say let them, but let them front the bill 100%. Taxpayers should NOT be paying for this circus anymore.
