Oracle received good news Monday when the PTO issued a Notice of Intent to Issue Reexamination Certificate for U.S. Patent No. 6,061,520, canceling some claims, but confirming the validity of other claims. The ‘520 patent is one of the seven Java Platform patents in Oracle’s infringement action against Google. A trial is set to start in the Northern District of California on October 31, 2011, but there is a realistic possibility of the trial judge staying the case until completion of the reexaminations or of the parties settling.
An excellent report on the status of the Oracle-Google case was posted yesterday in FOSS PATENTS.
