Tyler Ochoa spoke to Yahoo news about how Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death will likely affect a SCOTUS ruling on the decade-long feud between Google and Oracle, set to be heard by the court in October.

“Ginsburg in particular has been the strongest voice on the court in favor of intellectual property owners,” Tyler Ochoa, a professor of law at Santa Clara University School of Law and an expert on copyright law, told Yahoo Finance. “It would have been very easy to predict that she likely would have voted in favor of Oracle, and without her on the court, that’s one less vote in favor of Oracle, and it makes it somewhat more likely that Google will prevail.”
