Bradley Arant Boult Cummings partner David Mixon was quoted in CIO and PCWorld regarding the progress of the mounting legal battle between Oracle and Google. As the Android patents in question are reexamined by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO), Google and Oracle are expected to argue whether the case should be delayed pending the PTO’s decisions. There are suggestions that the PTO’s ruling could minimize Oracle’s claims, making Google more open to a settlement. Furthermore, Judge William Alsup is expected to pose exacting questions for Google regarding their intent and knowledge of the possible infringements. Mixon speculated that the case would most likely be delayed.
