Motorola (MMI) Gets Favorable German Ruling Against Apple (AAPL) in Email Synch Patent

April 13, 2012 7:54 AM EDT
Motorola was granted a new victory in its patent war with Apple.

According to reports out Friday, a Mannheim regional court in Germany backed the ban on push emails in Apple's (Nasdaq: AAPL) iCloud and MobileMe services. The ban maintains Apple infringed on a Motorola Mobility (NYSE: MMI) patent for synchronizing email across several mobile devices.

Apple will need to pay damages to Motorola, though the amounts weren't specified.

Final ruling on the case is likely within a few weeks.

Shares of Apple are indicated higher Friday morning.
