Apple has been expending a great deal of effort in claiming its rights as it goes after other companies for infringing on its patents. Its recent debate against Motorola Mobility, however, has been barred by a U.S. Circuit Judge in Chicago.
Judge Richard A. Posner denied requests from both companies to ban one another on account of patent infringement. The 38-page order was issued on June 22, ending the lawsuit that started in 2010. Posner simply states that neither Apple nor Motorola has a right to claim damages.
The order follows last month’s decision to reject each company’s request for damage compensation, simply because neither company gave enough proof.
Apple opened the case against Motorola soon after Google purchased Motorola for $12.5 billion.
