ITC Administrative Law Judge David Shaw ruled that Microsoft violated four of five Motorola Mobility patent, according to Bloomberg, which also reported that Shaw's findings are subject to review by a six-member commission.
The final ruling is expected in August, according to Reuters.
Today's decision stems from a lawsuit Motorola filed against Microsoft with the ITC in November 2010. It is one of several lawsuits, spanning several cities worldwide, that the two companies have filed against each other, alleging patent infringement.
Motorola has asked the ITC to prohibit Microsoft from importing Xboxes into the U.S. from China, where they are manufactured."
