    Apparently it helps if you can get your case heard in a court run by the wife of the firm you’ve hired to represent you.

    Okay, is anything major actually going to happen Android, now?:

    Supreme Court refuses to hear Google’s appeal in Java patent case
    “The decision curtails Google’s efforts to avoid paying Oracle licensing fees for using Java code in the Android mobile operating system. - C|NET (Lance Whitney @lancewhit) - June 29, 2015”

    “Google has again come out the loser in a court decision that could cost it a hefty chunk of cash.

    On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that it will not hear an appeal from Google over a copyright case that could force the search giant to pay Oracle licensing fees for using the Java programming language, Reuters reported. After an appeals court decided in favor of Oracle last year, Google took its appeal to the Supreme Court.
