It looks like the end of Apple's U.S. patent lawsuit against Motorola may be in sight. Earlier today U.S. Circuit Judge Richard A. Posner threw out the case in its entirety with prejudice. This means that not only will no injunctions come from the case, but the patent claims alleged by Apple and Motorola cannot be brought up against the other in federal court again. After having both companies directly present their cases to him, Judge Posner came to the conclusion that neither party had provided enough evidence of damages to warrant an injunction. The judge is calling this a tentative ruling and will write his official opinion next week. Until then he is reserving the right to change his mind, but it's not likely. So far it looks like a win for Motorola, but we'll keep you updated.
