Google still trying to remove damning e-mail from court case

16.08.2011

When the e-mail surfaced during a hearing last month, Judge William Alsup, who is overseeing the case, told Google: "You're going to be on the losing end of this document with Andy Rubin on the stand." Rubin runs Android for Google.

By 4:30 p.m. Pacific Time, Oracle hadn't filed any documents related to the e-mail.

The lawsuit dates back to last year when Oracle accused Google of infringing on Java-related patents in Android. A jury trial in the case, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, is set for Oct. 31.
