During the ongoing legal battle between Google and Oracle, Judge William Alsup had ordered both the companies to disclose the names of any or all such bloggers and journalist that they had paid to cover this particular case. Both Google and Oracle submitted the names but according to Judge Alsup, Google hasn’t fully complied with the order.

Judge Alsup, in his statement, rather directly states that ‘Google has failed to comply’ with the specific order of the court which demanded it to submit the names of bloggers and journalists it had paid. In response to the earlier order, Google had stated that it hadn’t “paid an author, journalist, commentator or blogger to report or comment on any issues in this case.” Oracle, on the other hand, had revealed FOSS Patents blogger, Florian Mueller, as a consultant.

Alsup was quick to point out that the definition Google tried to use was bit too narrow. The order was originally meant to know such journalists or bloggers who were covering the issue while being obviously biased in favor of a certain party. Alsup wrote that “the order was designed to bring to light authors whose statements about the issues in the case might have been influenced by the receipt of money from Google or Oracle.”

The court has given Google time to reconsider its response and submit a new list by the noon of Friday. Evidently, the court has reasons to believe that Google hasn’t fully complied with the order. And the company will have to be fully honest this time.
