Larry Ellison and Larry Page are ordered to participate in settlement talks over Android lawsuit.

Foss Patents have reported that Google’s and Oracle’s CEOs,
Larry Ellison and Larry Page, have been ordered to participate in settlement talks in court, by
Magistrate Judge Paul Grewal. As Judge Alsup, the presiding judge
over the case, recommended the ordering of the CEOs, they will be
unable to ask the presiding judge to overrule the magistrate’s
order. “With so much at stake, it’s reasonable to ask the CEOs to
attend. It’s the best shot at resolving this without a trial,” says
Florian Mueller.

According to Read Write Web, both parties have responded
positively to the idea of a settlement talk, with Oracle issuing a

Google have also responded positively, and proposed that Andy

General Counsel of Google.
