According to Bloomberg Google is asked the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington to throw out the patent-infringement verdict Vringo won in 2012. The patent dispute is related to filtering technology that helps determine the placement of ads in search results. Vringo says Google used the technology in AdWords and AdSense for Search.
Google's appeal only applies to the verdict of the case, and no the subsequent court rulings. One subsequent ruling said that Google's changes to AdWords didn't adequately work around Vringo's patents.
