    D & C 180-degree turn from just a few weeks ago

    "Apple Inc. (AAMRQ) is appealing a bankruptcy judge’s ruling in favor of Eastman Kodak Co. that blocked the iPhone maker’s claims to two patents.

    Apple said in a court filing Aug. 22 that it is challenging U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Allan Gropper’s decision that gave Kodak a partial victory in a lawsuit over ownership of 10 patents.

    The assets are in a portfolio of patents that Kodak put up for sale as part of its bankruptcy restructuring. The Rochester, New York-based company sued Apple after the Cupertino, California-based company asserted claims to the patents.

    Gropper ruled in favor of Kodak on two of the patents. The judge denied the company’s request for a pretrial ruling known as summary judgment on the eight others and said Kodak could renew its request.

    The case is Eastman Kodak Co. (EKDKQ) v. Apple Inc. (AAPL), 12-01720, U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Southern District of New York (Manhattan).
