SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A federal jury in San Francisco is expected to deliver at least a partial verdict Monday in a copyright-infringement trial pitting Oracle against Google.

The 12 jurors informed U.S. District Judge William Aslup that they have unanimously agreed on three of the four issues at stake in the opening round of the trial. The jury foreman says there appears to be an impasse on the remaining issue.

Aslup was leaning toward accepting a partial verdict Friday until the foreman mentioned some jurors believe some of the holdouts could change their mind over the weekend.

The jury is debating Oracle Corp.’s allegations that Google Inc. built its popular Android software for mobile devices by stealing some of the technology from Java, a programming platform that Oracle bought two years ago
