In a surprising development, Google subsidiary Motorola Mobility has withdrawn its second ITC complaint against Apple, reports FOSS Patents.

-----
UNOPPOSED MOTION TO TERMINATE OF COMPLAINANTS MOTOROLA MOBILITY LLC, MOTOROLA MOBILITY IRELAND AND MOTOROLA MOBILITY INTERNATIONAL

Under 19 C.F.R. § 210.21(a), Complainants Motorola Mobility LLC, Motorola Mobility Ireland, and Motorola Mobility International Limited (collectively, 'Motorola') hereby move to terminate all claims in this investigation without prejudice based on Motorola's withdrawal of the complaint, with Motorola and Apple each bearing their own costs and attorneys' fees. There are no agreements between Motorola and Apple, written or oral, express or implied, concerning the subject matter of this investigation. Respondent Apple Inc. and the Office of Unfair Import Investigations Staff Attorney have confirmed that they do not oppose this motion.

Typically, complaints are withdrawn due to a settlement deal between parties; however, the site has found no signs that this has occurred. It's also possible that Motorola didn't get all the documents it needed for the complaint in time or perhaps it felt the complaint would not succeed. For now it remains a mystery.
