#Oracle v. #Google - A Potpourri of Filings and Orders

It's been a busy several days in terms of new filings and orders in the Oracle v. Google case. Most of these relate to various discovery requests, and there is no clear winner with each side scoring some points. Without further ado, let's dig in.
First up is a Google précis seeking to suppress the now famous Lindholm email. Not surprisingly, Oracle opposed this. And Judge Alsup's decision? He issued an order (271) [PDF] denying Google's request but also denying Oracle's request to compel Google to produce the document. Basically, Judge Alsup says it is up to the magistrate to settle this dispute. Let's call it a draw.
