White House Finally Stands Up To Google

Can someone explain to me why the White House is even involved in this case? I don't care one way or the other about this case, I just think the US Supreme Court should be able to make its own decision based on the merits of the case without outside influence from the White House.

The Department of Justice filed a brief Wednesday recommending that the US Supreme Court reject Google’s appeal in Oracle’s lawsuit against the company over its use of elements of the Java programming language. This doesn’t mean that the Supreme Court won’t hear the case. But the White House’s opposition does cast doubt on whether it will wind up on the docket.
