You can search Google News for a gazillion articles. This ZD Net article provides download links to both complaints. But from the Wall Street Journal:

The two lawsuits were filed Friday in U.S. district court in Wisconsin. They come after Motorola sued Apple earlier this month for patent infringement and are the latest skirmish in a long-running series of disputes in the fiercely competitive smartphone industry.

...n the complaints, Apple alleges that Motorola smartphones including those in its Droid lineup violate six Apple patents covering touchscreen and multitouch technology as well as ways to display, access and interact with information on the phone. Apple is requesting that a judge award damages and attorney's fees and that the courts stop Motorola from selling the products. Notably, the suits single out the operating system as well.

Likely result? After millions in attorney fees on both sides, there will be a cross-licensing agreement.

Depending on how much legal weight and money Google tosses in, like a 500-pound amicus brief, nothing will come of it.
