Apple, Motorola Appeal Patent Ruling

Apple Inc. and Google Inc.'s Motorola Mobility unit filed separate appeals of a federal judge’s June 22 order dismissing their mutual patent- infringement claims. U.S. Circuit Judge Richard A. Posner threw out the companies’ claims about two weeks after he rejected each mobile- phone maker’s damages theories and canceled a jury trial that had been set for June 11 in federal court in Chicago.
