Judge Robert E. Payne of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia dismissed Motorola from the case Friday, after approving the parties' stipulated dismissal of claims related to U.S. Patent Numbers 6,539,205 and 6,680,920.

Further details of the deal were not available, and attorneys for WIAV and for Motorola did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
