It "appears possible" that Google knew that its Android
mobile operating system would violate Java patents held by Oracle,
but decided to go ahead with the effort anyway, the judge
overseeing the companies' intellectual property lawsuit said in a
letter filed Tuesday.
"Judge William Alsup made the statement in connection with the
so-called Daubert motion Google has filed in hopes of excluding the
findings of Oracle's damages expert. Both sides have submitted
briefs in connection with a hearing on the motion, which is
scheduled for July 21."
