quote: Conversely, and something I didn't see in the story Jason is telling, the judge did say that if the case had gone to trial he would have killed Motorola's (Google's) suit outright as he felt Motorola did not have a case at all.
quote: So the bottom line (according to Posner) is Apple *might* have had a case but screwed it up so completely that the judge had to throw it out because the legal team messed up so badly that Apple would never have been awarded a dime even if they won at trial AND Motorola never had a case at all.
quote: Yes, the judge very rightly smacked Apple. However, he did not say Apple did not have any case at all. He said Apple failed to show it was being damaged in any way that could provide for a judgement.
quote: No, as I said in the piece, he took issue with Apple's refusal to come to reasonable/appropriate damages.
