Motorola Mobility Faces Patent Retrial After Deadlock

Google Inc.’s Motorola Mobility will face a new trial against patent-licensing firm Intellectual Ventures over mobile-device technology after a jury said it couldn’t agree on a verdict following two days of deliberations.

U.S. District Judge Sue L. Robinson in Wilmington, Delaware, dismissed the panel of five men and five women yesterday after sealing the courtroom from the public. Robinson declared a mistrial and called for a retrial after the jury failed to reach a unanimous decision, Bellevue, Washington-based Intellectual Ventures said in a statement on its website.
