On Friday (June 22 2012) Judge Richard Posner threw out a patent case between Motorola (Google) and Apple. He did not just dismiss it though; Judge Posner dismissed it with prejudice. This means that neither Apple nor Google can come back at each other for the same patents. True both have the right of appeal, but when something like this happens it is unlikely that an appeal will be granted.
