Google Settles Skyhook Wi-Fi Location Patent Tiff

Law360, Los Angeles (March 5, 2015, 8:10 PM EST) -- Google Inc. has settled Skyhook Wireless Inc.'s infringement case over patents on locating mobile devices using Wi-Fi, after Google recently lost a bid for summary judgment and shortly before the start of trial, a Thursday filing in Massachusetts federal court said.

In a brief order, U.S. District Judge Rya W. Zobel dismissed the case without prejudice, noting that counsel for the parties had told the court that they had reached a deal. The judge said that the parties could reopen the case within 45 days if the settlement isn't consummated.

The filing didn't detail any terms of the deal.
