WASHINGTON, April 24 Apple Inc (AAPL.O)
infringed on a Motorola Mobility (MMI.N) patent in making its
popular iPhones, iPads and other products, a judge for the
International Trade Commission ruled on Tuesday.
Motorola Mobility, which is in the process of being
acquired by Google (GOOG.O), had filed related lawsuits against
Apple in district courts in Illinois and Florida.
Apple did not violate three other patents which Motorola
Mobility accused it of infringing, ITC Judge Thomas Pender said
in a preliminary ruling.
The full commission will now review the judge's decision
and issue a final ruling in August.
The case is at the International Trade Commission, No.
