Richard Posner is an influential US judge. He became prominent in the patent debate in 2012 when he dismissed a law suit between Apple and Google.


Apple v. Google in 2012

Posner is an appeals court judge but decided to come down to a district court to hear a patent suit which Apple filed against Google's Motorola Mobility division, along with Google's countersuit. The trial was due to start on Monday, 11 June, but Posner released a statement on the Friday beforehand saying that although there may be infringement, no damage had been proven and he had decided to dismiss the case "with prejudice" (thus no further case possible for the same infringement).
