Judge cancels Apple’s patent infringement trial against Motorola

A judge ruled today that Apple and Motorola won’t be able to duke it out just yet, Bloomberg reports.

Apple’s patent infringement jury trial against Google’s Motorola Mobility was scheduled for June 11, but U.S. Circuit Judge Richard A. Posner told the companies’ attorneys he is rejecting arguments for damages because neither side was able to “prove injury.”

This would have been the first patent trial between the two companies since Google acquired Motorola for $12.5 billion last month, although Apple and Moto have been sparring for quite a while. Motorola claims that Apple infringed several of its wireless and smartphone technologies. Apple has alleged that Motorola has violated some of its key patents related to iOS devices.

Posner is still considering whether to go forward with an Apple request for injunctive relief and is expected to issue a decision later today, according to Bloomberg.
