The day Oracle purchased Sun, Java was dead to me...

I think Vic Macky should arbitrate. He has a unique style, like lock them in a shipping container untill they work it out themselves, and not tie up our courts and judges with all this patent BS which has gotten way out of hand. I believe a lot of blame goes to the lawyers who push their clients into these rediculus situations so their 40% share is 39.9999999999.............adinfinitum more than they are worth.

I'm not sure I do.  How can he label Google's refusal to pay "totally wrong" until the trial has been conducted?

Because as annoying as Oracle is, Google did violate patents they own through Sun Micro. The trial is going to be less about if Google violated anything and more about how much of Andorid depends upon those patents. Google should have offered a settlement of some sort, even if they are just patent trolling.
