In 2012, the court ruled that the API was not protected by law and rejected the case. Subsequently, Oracle appealed that in March 2018, the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit overturned the first instance.
Then came the Google appeal, but was rejected in August last year. If Google doesn't do anything, it's up to the jury to decide what Google should pay for Oracle, which initially asked for $8.8 billion. But in January of this year, Google asked the US Supreme Court to terminate Oracle’s lawsuit.
There is no doubt that the "you come and go" on both sides made the Supreme Court guilty. To this end, the Supreme Court today sought help from the Trump administration and whether it will continue to hear Google’s appeal.
For certain cases, the US Supreme Court sometimes seeks advice from the government. In 2015, the court dismissed Google’s previous appeal in the case because it heard the advice of the Justice Department under the Obama administration.
