Google moved for a mistrial after hearing the incomplete decision. The patent infringement accusations have yet to be ruled upon."

How about mentioning that they waffled on the decision?
Q1a: yes
Q2a (fair use): unanswered
most of the rest: basically in google's favor (aside from timsort's inclusion)
ruled not in google's favor: that sun's statements were enough to decide that they didn't need a license.
