U.S. judge declares mistrial in Google, Intellectual Ventures case

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb 5 (Reuters) - A U.S. judge on Wednesday declared a mistrial in a lawsuit brought by private patent owner Intellectual Ventures against Google Inc’s Motorola Mobility unit, according to a Intellectual Ventures statement.

The decision, by U.S. District Judge Sue Robinson in Wilmington, Delaware, came after jurors could not unanimously agree on a verdict, Intellectual Ventures chief litigation counsel Melissa Finocchio said.

Intellectual Ventures has been locked in a legal battle against Motorola over three patents covering a variety of smartphone-related technologies, including Google Play. The trial lasted nearly two weeks.

The case in U.S. District Court, District of Delaware is Intellectual Ventures I and Intellectual Ventures II vs. Motorola Mobility, 11-908.
