Google twists the knife, asks for sanctions against Oracle attorneyWhat Google doesn’t want you to know: It pays Apple $1 billion to be on the iPhone.
The second @Oracle v. @Google trial drew to a close in May, when a jury found that #Google ‘s use of certain Java APIs wasn’t a copyright infringement. But court filings from last week show that Google isn’t done delivering punishment to #Oracle, which started the litigation back in 2010. Google will be filing a motion for sanctions against Oracle and its law firm, Orrick, Sutcliffe & Herrington. The motion relates to statements by Oracle attorney Annette Hurst, who revealed financial arrangements between Google and Apple that were confidential—until she discussed them in open court at a January 14 discovery proceeding.
