Ouch – Judge orders Oracle to reimburse Google’s legal expenses

38

Just last week, the judge presiding over the case between Oracle and Google found the Google was innocent of the charges against them for patent infringement. That’s not the news we’ve got in this particular article. No, this time, the news is that the same judge also ordered Oracle to completely reimburse Google’s legal fees. The story goes a little something like this: Oracle brought their suit to the court system not once, not twice, but three separate times. Judge William Alsup didn’t like this, and even accused Oracle outright of wasting the court’s time. He said that Oracle could only bring the suit back the third time on the condition that Oracle repay Google any fees associated with coming back to court.

The total in damages, according to Google spokesman Jim Prosser, came to over $300,000. That’s alot of dough, folks, whether you’re a huge corporation or not. Also, keep in mind, having the reputation of whining to the courts so much that you’re told to pay lost funds back to the defendant? That’s pretty embarrassing, and will likely tarnish Oracle’s image for a long time to come. It should also be noted that Oracle spokeswoman Deborah Hellinger declined to comment.

EDIT: The total given to Google was not a complete reimbursement of fees, but rather a portion of it as pertaining to the third revision of the suit.

  1. Seriously, if you’re still spelling “a lot” as “alot” then you should not be writing articles. There is NO excuse for that mistake.

  2. This is not even close to accurate. The judge ordered Oracle to pay for Google’s legal expenses as they pertained to the third revision of the damages report. It was not the third time oracle brought the case to.court, just the third revision of the.sages.report.

    The cost was.high but not.close to the total legal expenses Google incurred.

  3. Do your research, this was a horribly written article that has no foundation in what actually happened…

    What you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    • And at no point in your rambling comment are you close to anything that could be considered a rational argument as to what in the article is wrong. Help us fellow readers out here – if you know what actually happened please say so instead offering a well worded “You’re wrong! Phhhthhthhhhttt!”

  4. haha, I love Aslep, not only is he a programmer, he take no shit from nobody and told the lawyers of Oracle several times through out the court case to get real and having not done what he asked them to do, he decided to teach them an lesson by fining them.
