Xbox 360 does not violate a patent held by Motorola, US trade judge David Shaw said in a note posted to the ITC website (PDF).

It was reported back in January that Motorola had dropped two of its patent infringement suits against Microsoft regarding video-coding and connectivity tech within the console, but apparently not the wireless patent. The case originally involved five patent claims. More through Bloomberg. Thanks, Polygon.
