Google, Facebook Among Those Preparing To Sign Court Filing In Support Of Apple

"“I think it’s fair to say there’s an extraordinary amount of support for Apple right now,” said Andrew Bridges, a partner at the law firm Fenwick & West LLP who has represented Google in the past. Bridges said he was in touch “with a number of companies” interested in signing onto a brief supporting Apple, but declined to say which ones.

“It’s moving so fast,” Bridges said of the situation late Thursday, adding that he was not currently representing Google, but that that could change between now and next week. “The reality is with an amicus brief, I don’t know who is signing on until about five minutes before I file it. It’s almost like a ballot box.”"
