It looks like Oracle are really going after Google in their lawsuit over Android's use of Java, seeking damages "in the billions of dollars". Barring any settlements between the two, the trial is expected to begin in November.

A disclosure was forced following last week's filing from Google, where they called Oracle's damage report "unreliable and results-oriented," and asked
that he court to keep private some damages information Google disclosed in a court filing. Oracle accused Google of trying to conceal the damage claims in a document filed yesterday, and said it doesn't have any problem with the damage information becoming public. Google have now been forced to make the damages information public by this Friday.

So it looks like we'll all know exactly how much Oracle are looking for later in the day. Stay tuned for updates.
