No injunction for Skyline against Google Earth

…And the news just comes on flooding in:

Skyline Software Systems is denied a preliminary injunction to stop Google from distributing Google Earth, reports ZDNet.

U.S. District Judge Douglas Woodlock on Friday denied a preliminary injunction requested by a Virginia-based company called Skyline Software Systems, which alleges that Google Earth violates its terrain-mapping patent.

A notice posted on the court’s Web site says that Woodlock announced his decision in a telephone conference with attorneys involved in the case without publishing a written opinion.
