Law Firm Conflict Allegation Rejected: Google Not "Feeling Lucky"

This update for a story we noted earlier today about Google's attempt to disqualify former counsel: "Google Loses Bid to Disqualify Lawyers Suing Android Partners."
  • The ITC ruled that “Google offers no evidence regarding how Google’s business interests will be harmed through this litigation... I find that the actions taken by Pepper Hamilton serve as a reasonable precaution to keep the confidential information of Google and Digitude separate."
  • "Pepper Hamilton has pledged not to question any Google witnesses and it’s set up an 'ethical screen' to keep lawyers who are working on behalf of Digitude in Washington and Boston from accessing confidential information related to Google’s patents."
