Court Declares Mistrial In Motorola Patent Case
Intellectual Ventures today indicated that a Delaware jury was unable to reach a verdict in a patent case it brought against Google's Motorola unit. With no verdict, the court was forced to declare a mistrial. "Mistrials are an occasional fact of life, and it is disappointing that the jury could not reach a unanimous verdict. But we are looking ahead to the retrial on these patents and also to our two other upcoming trials with Motorola Mobility later this year," said Melissa Finocchio, chief litigation counsel for Intellectual Ventures. The case involves Motorola hardware and features of the Google Play Store. Intellectual Ventures is a patent-holding firm.
