Oracle and Google Ordered Back into Android Settlement Talks

Companies have to sit down again before April 9, a week before the trial starts on April 16

Oracle and Google have been ordered back into settlement talks.

Magistrate Judge Paul Grewal, who tried to mediate a settlement last year over Oracle's Java infringement beef with Google and Android, told the companies they have to sit down again before April 9, a week before the trial starts on April 16.

They have to send Oracle co-president Safra Katz and Google's Android chief Andy Rubin.

The case is now pretty much an API copyright infringement case. Oracle's patents claims having been decimated. Oracle could conceivably assert new patents in another case.
