The time when the whole world was busy with the latest gadgets at Consumer Electronic Show, there have been developments over OracleGoogle Android lawsuit. The date for the Oracle’s lawsuit against Google is unclear as per the ruling filed on Thursday in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California.

Judge William Alsup clearly states that, “Before a trial date will be set, the issue of damages methodology must be finally sorted out.” He also added that “Put differently, the Court will not set a trial date until Oracle adopts proper damages methodology, even assuming a third try is allowed (or unless Oracle waives damages beyond those already allowed to go to the jury).”

Oracle’s damage expert originally estimated last year that Google could own upto $6.1 billion in damages for the alleged violations. But Judge Alsup rejected that assessment, and asked Oracle to produce a fresh damages report that will be acceptable to the judge.

Oracle has asked for the trial to begin as soon as possible, in other filings. But on the other way, Google’s petition over the email is that in the way, which is based on Alsup’s ruling is that, ‘If Oracle will waive reliance on that email, and then this roadblock would vanish.’

Well, only the time will show as of now, what will happen next on this lawsuit.
