The Ordnance Survey has dismissed any chance of an out-of-court settlement with Getmapping.com after a High Court judge described parts of Getmapping's law suit as ""very weak"".

The Ordnance Survey has dismissed any chance of an out-of-court settlement with Getmapping.com after a High Court judge described parts of Getmapping's law suit as "very weak".

The digital mapping company, whose investors include the Queen, last week failed to persuade the High Court to grant an injunction forcing the Ordnance Survey to make Getmapping's digital map available through its Web site.

But Justice Laddie ordered that a full trial should start as soon as possible because of the harm being done to Getmapping's business.

Getmapping MD Tristram Cary admitted: "The business is suffering. I believe we've lost several million pounds [because of the actions of the Ordnance Survey]." However, he denied it would be forced out of business if it lost the case.

Getmapping is claiming that the Ordnance Survey is abusing its position and using public funds to illegally subsidise its own digital map initiatives, undercutting private sector rivals. However, Justice Laddie said Getmapping's claims that it had abused a dominant position were "very weak".
