From the Courtroom: Oracle v. Google Trial - Jury: No Patent Infringement
Today’s jury verdict that Android does not infringe Oracle’s patents was a victory not just for Google but the entire Android ecosystem.
Question 1: has Oracle proved by preponderance of evidence that Google infringed?
Claim 11: not proven
Question 2: not proven
Question 3: no answer, no response, not applicable.
Unanimous. The jury is dismissed. There will be no damages phase for them to endure. And there was only one
juror holding out for Oracle. We also learn that in the copyright phase, it was 9 to 3 for Google on fair use. See Dan
Levine's tweets in Update 2. In short, Oracle has lost big time so far.
Jury discharged.. because phase 1 and 2 done, and phase 3 not happening due to agreements between lawyers.
Jury can talk or not talk to anyone, but please be accurate because inaccuracy can lead to evidentiary hearing and
impeachment of verdict.
In his heart, you are respected, he said, and your verdict is respected.
I haven't had a jury in a civil case that has gone this long, "longest civil trial" and you all have been a superb jury,
and this country is a great country, because of citizens like you who are willing to sacrifice and come in as you have.
Thanks them on behalf of country and Federal court.
He will then thank them individually in jury room.
