The expensive trial, in which Oracle accused Google of patent violations related to Java in the Android mobile operating system, ended up with Google being the victor.
U.S. District Judge William Alsup approved Google's request to have costs recovered because they were the winning party.
Google had requested $3 million for the costs of experts and electronic searches but the full amount was rejected.
Oracle had been seeking $1 billion in damages.
