Apple-Motorola patent lawsuit dismissed

An Apple lawsuit against Google’s Motorola Mobility over alleged patent abuse was dismissed from Wisconsin federal court hours before going to trial, Reuters reports. Apple sought fair licensing over patents Google acquired along with Motorola, but District Judge Barbara Crabb dismissed the case. Crabb questioned whether she had legal authority to hear the claims, and it’s possible that Apple will appeal the decision. Apple recently offered Motorola $1 per iPhone for licensing standard-essential wireless patents.
