Vringo Vs. Google: Two Motions Denied Today

|Includes: XpresSpa Group (XSPA)

I understand that near the end of the Court day today, Judge Jackson (1) DENIED Vringo's motion for reconsideration that sought to exclude Google's 250 pages of source code and (2) DENIED Google's emergency motion to strike Vringo's liability expert, Dr. Frieder's, supplemental opinions commenting on the 250 pages of source code.

Both outcomes were anticipated, and are consistent with Judge Jackson's inclination in his prior rulings, to allow evidence into the trial for the jury to consider. The net result of this is that Google's liability expert, Dr. Ungar, will be able to use the 250 pages of source code as support for his expert opinions, and Dr. Frieder will be able to comment on why he feels the source code does not change the outcome.

Nothing earth shattering here. This case remains a battle of the experts.
