Motorola Mobility, which is in the process of being acquired by Google
Apple did not violate three other patents which Motorola Mobility accused it of infringing, ITC Judge Thomas Pender said in a preliminary ruling.
The full commission will now review the judge's decision and issue a final ruling in August.
The case is at the International Trade Commission, No. 337-745.
