Oracle Corporation (NYSE:ORCL) persists its position slightly strong in context of buying side, while shares price surged 0.68% during latest trading session. Oracle lost the retrial of its case against Alphabet when the jury decided that the firm’s use of Java API code should be considered “fair use.” But in last week, Oracle lawyers made a fresh appeal saying that Google withheld key information. One of the defenses Google took in the retrial was that it had used the desktop version of Java while Android was used in mobile devices. Oracle says that the recent launch of Google Play on Chrome therefore renders this defense groundless. They therefore think another retrial is justified so the jury can have access to this information.
Google’s response was that during discovery Oracle had asked for and attained information about App Runtime for Chrome (ARC), so Oracle could have pursued the matter then. And the update ARC++ was still in the works at the time, so wasn’t mentioned, especially since “it was beyond the scope of the trial.”
