Apple Win in Google Case to Be Reviewed by Trade Agency

Apple Inc.’s preliminary victory in a patent-infringement case brought by Google Inc.’s Motorola Mobility unit over a phone sensor will be reviewed by a trade agency that has the power to block imports of the iPhone.

The U.S. International Trade Commission said yesterday it will take a second look at parts of ITC Judge Thomas Pender’s findings that the Motorola Mobility patent is invalid. Notice of the decision was posted on the agency’s website. The commission is scheduled to make a final decision April 22.
