Submission + - Interval's Suit Against the World Dismissed (groklaw.net)

randall77 writes: From Groklaw: Paul Allen's patent infringement complaint against the world and its dog has been dismissed.

Google said the complaint was too vague to meet the standard under Ashcroft v. Iqbal, 129 S. Ct. 1937 (2009) and Bell Atl. Corp. v. Twombly, 550 U.S. 544 (2007). Then, after Interval Licensing brought up the lower patent form standard it thought should apply instead, AOL jumped in saying the complaint was too vague under even that standard, and the court agreed.
