Apple has failed to shake coveted information about Google's development of Android and its $12.5 billion planned acquisition of soon-to-be Google satellite Motorola Mobility out of MMI.
Circuit Court Judge Richard Posner, who will hear Apple's patent complaints against Motorola this summer, said in a ruling the other day that Apple's discovery motion was "vague and overbroad and Motorola's objections are persuasive." Apple will have to "narrow its request to a manageable and particularized set of documents" if it wants a new court order.
The arguments Motorola mustered are under seal.
On March 5 Posner ordered MMI to turn over the information Apple wanted and on March 16 Apple told the court MMI hadn't complied. Bloomberg found the ruling.
