(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – What would have been a high-profile battle between tech giants Motorola Mobility and Apple will no longer take place. A trial that would have started Monday was recently canceled by U.S. District Judge Richard Posner, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal.
The judge argued that both sides had failed to provide “a right of relief” for the patent allegations.
Apple is currently involved a number of other patent disputes with companies including Samsung. Reports yesterday indicated that the Cupertino, California-based company would seek to have a court block the sale of Samsung’s Galaxy SIII mobile phone in the U.S. over a patent controversy.
Meanwhile, it remains to be seen whether or not further legal action will occur between the tech providers. Motorola Mobility officially became part of Google in May.
