Judge Posner, in overseeing the current legal battle between Motorola and Apple, has decided to throw out one of Motorola’s motions asking that one of Apple’s patents be thrown out. This decision means that Apple’s heuristics patent can continue to be used against Motorola, which is a big deal for this case. The heuristics patent will likely be used in a number of other cases, and is key to Apple’s continued legal strategy.
