This trial just rumbles on and on, but it looks like Oracle's argument is running out of steam. In the latest filing, Oracle have responded to Google's attempts at speeding up the conclusion, saying the offer is just too low. While Oracle had been looking for hundreds of millions, Google have offered 2.8 million in damages - not quite the number that Oracle had in mind. 

In addition to this, Google would pay Oracle 0.5 percent of Android's revenue for one of the two patents, expiring at the end of this year, and a further 0.015 percent for the other patent, expiring in April 2018. 

The trial is set for April 16.  Looks like nothing will be settled until then.
