Judge Says Skyhook Lawsuit Against Google Can Proceed [computerworlduk.com]
Skyhook Wireless will be allowed to go forward with its Massachusetts lawsuit against Google, charging the search giant with trying to muscle Skyhook's Wi-Fi location technology out of the Android market. A state judge this week denied Google's request to either dismiss the case or grant a summary judgment.

The company has filed two lawsuits against Google. One, a federal suit filed in September 2010, says Google is infringing four Skyhook patents. The second is a state suit, filed in Suffolk County Superior Court. This suit claims that Google used its relationship with handset makers, specifically Motorola, to keep the Skyhook client software off their phones.
