Google and Motorola Mobility have been ordered by a US judge to turn over details related to the development of Android to Apple. Google has to hand over information about Google's pending $12.5 billion acquisition of Moto as well.
Bloomberg reports that US Circuit Judge Richard A Posner made the decision as part of a patent lawsuit filed by Apple in 2010. One of Motorola's attorneys said:
"Google's employees and documents are not within the ‘possession, custody, or control' of Motorola, and Motorola cannot force Google to produce documents or witnesses over Google's objections."
