Texas Court Stays Rockstar Android Patent Case

Google Inc. will fight patent holder Rockstar Consortium in a California court instead of a Texas court that lawyers consider more friendly toward plaintiffs. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit ordered proceedings stayed in Texas over whether handsets made by Samsung Electronics, HTC Corp., AsuSTEK Computer, LG Electronics and ZTE Corp. infringed on Rockstar's patents because they used Google's Android operating system.
