Legal "Earlier this month Judge William Alsup ordered Oracle and Google to disclose any journalists or bloggers either has paid that could have commented on the Oracle v. Google case. Both parties responded last week - but Judge Alsup didn't think Google was completely forthright, and has asked the company to try again by the end of the week." Good to know Alsup is on top of this. Google claimed it hadn't paid any shills, but as large and powerful as the company is, I find that very hard to believe.

Read Google's Filing

I skimmed it on Groklaw, but from what I saw of Google's filing they said they didn't pay anyone directly and then asked the court for clarification on the order to confirm the depth being requested.

For instance, bloggers with Google AdSense are "paid by Google" but that doesn't mean Google has a relationship with the blogger to post stories on behalf of, at the direction of or, or specifically to benefit Google.

Seems much to do about nothing really. At least for this particular item.
