A jury in San Francisco on Thursday cleared Google of copyright infringement in a case brought by Oracle over Google’s use of Java in Android.

The jury of eight women and two men took three days of deliberation to reach its verdict. Oracle was seeking up to $9 billion in damages, making it a huge victory for Google and its legal team.

“Your work is done,” Judge William Alsup told the jury after the verdict was read.

Oracle’s lawyers sat stoney faced after the verdict was read, but shortly afterward the company said it would continue the battle.
