MikeatWired writes "Google is seeking $4 million from Oracle to cover the costs it incurred during this spring’s epic legal battle over the Android mobile operating system, reports Caleb Garling. In a brief filed with in federal court on Thursday night, Google lead counsel Robert Van Nest argued that Oracle is required to pay his company’s legal costs because judge and jury ruled in favor of Google on almost every issue during the six-week trial. 'Google prevailed on a substantial part of the litigation,' read Google’s brief. '[Oracle] recovered none of the relief it sought in this litigation. Accordingly, Google is the prevailing party and is entitled to recover costs.' Google has not publicly revealed an itemized list of its expenses, but the total bill included $2.9 million spent copying and organizing documents. According to the brief, the company juggled a mind-boggled 97 million documents during the case." Link to Original Source
