From Times Staff and Wire Service Reports

Judge Dismisses Xerox’s Suit Against Apple: A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit Xerox Corp. filed against Apple Computer Inc. after Xerox gave up its one remaining claim in the suit, which centered on rights to the popular display technology in the Macintosh computer. Xerox’s decision will allow the company to appeal the case more quickly. The lawsuit, which was filed in December, focused on technology known as a graphical user interface, which makes computers easier to use by replacing typed commands with pictures on the screen and a pointer device called a mouse. The suit sought $150 million in damages.
