37186525 story Oracle To Pay Google $1 Million For Lawyer Fees In Failed Patent Case 97 Posted by Unknown Lamer on Wednesday September 05, 2012 @12:35PM from the larry-ellison-still-owns-an-island dept. eldavojohn writes "You may recall the news that Google would not be paying Oracle for Oracle's intellectual property claims against the search giant. Instead, Google requested $4.03 million for lawyer fees in the case. The judge denied some $2.9 million of those fees and instead settled on $1.13 million as an appropriate number for legal costs. Although this is relative peanuts to the two giants, Groklaw breaks the ruling down into more minute detail for anyone curious on what risks and repercussions are involved with patent trolling."
