An ITC judge has ruled that Apple didn't violate a Google/Motorola patent for a sensor that prevents accidental hang-ups, reports Bloomberg. The sensor determines the proximity of a person's head to the phone.

Judge Thomas Pender declared the patent invalid in a notice posted on the agency's docket. Pender was asked to consider a possible violation by the commission after it cleared Apple of other claims relating to 3G technology. His findings are subject to review by the full commission.
