Google has been fighting yet another patent lawsuit, this time against Intellectual Ventures. Today the jury in this trial decided that it would not be able to come to a unanimous decision, resulting in the court declaring a mistrial, reports Reuters.

“Mistrials are an occasional fact of life, and it is disappointing,” said Melissa Finocchio, chief litigation counsel for Intellectual Ventures. IV is looking forward to a retrial, she said.

The suit involved three patents that covered mobile technologies held by Intellectual Ventures. There is no word yet on what the company will do following the jury’s decision (or lack thereof).
