Apple, Motorola drop 14 patents from Florida lawsuit

updated 10:26 am EDT, Tue July 30, 2013

Case down to eight patents for future trial

Apple and Google-owned Motorola have agreed to drop a combined 14 patents from their Florida lawsuit, narrowing the involved patents to just four for each side. Motorola tossed eight, while Apple did away with six. The motion must still be approved by the District Court for the Southern District of Florida, but is in keeping with pressure from judge Robert Scola to scale back the case.

Scola has already delayed the trial schedule by four months, due to Apple and Motorola disagreeing on how to narrow claims without court aid. About half of the dropped patents have been dismissed with prejudice; this leaves open the possibility of future infringement claims, but only against products or services outside the current case. The dispute is scheduled to go to trial in 2014.
