A judge has thrown out opposing lawsuits filed by Apple and Motorola accusing one other of patent infringement. Bloomberg reports that U.S. Circuit Judge Richard A. Posner denied the requests for relief in a 38-page court order, in which he wrote that “Neither party is entitled to an injunction,” adding, “neither has shown that damages would not be an adequate remedy.” Posner rejected both companies’ money-damages theories and canceled a related jury trial earlier this month, claiming that there was a “simple failure of proof”. The trial would have been the first between Apple and Google, which completed its acquisition of Motorola Mobility last month.
