Oracle sued Google for using its Java software without paying for it to develop Android operating system.

Google is urging a San Francisco federal judge to redact and seal portions of the public transcript from last week’s hearing where this information was made public.
Google makes the claim that, “non-public financial data is highly sensitive, and public disclosure could have significant negative effects on Google’s business.” Oracle is currently seeking $1 billion in damages from Google.
In 2012 Oracle sued Google for $6 billion, but the judge rejected that amount as too high.
