No, they're attacking her because she is not showing Samsung to put on any defense.
Got documentation that shows you were working on, and had released one phone that was rectangle dominated by a touchscreen prior to the iPhone? Inadmissible.
Got emails from Apple showing they were using Sony designs for the iPhone? Denied.
Got instances of prior art? Leave it at home.
Want to show motive with Steve Jobs' comments? No way.
It's just comedic at this point. "Your Honor, we have DNA evidence that shows our client could not have been the murderer." "You should have had this evidence earlier. Inadmissible."

"The judge also said that Samsung can use a Compaq and Fidler tablet to prove that Apple's patents are invalid, but not to prove that it didn't infringe on Apple's patents."
This Asian lady could be better in seafood cooking than to rule a multi-billions case . If Samsung says for example we also adopt the Compaq or Fidler design, that means Samsung and Apple both use or get benefit of the design of other companies which lead to there is no any evidence that Samsung infringe Apple Patent, even that this patent is already invalid.
In other word, if someone follow a path to reach ROME, if anyone else reach ROME, there is no any evidence that second follow the path of the first one.
The Asian lady should herself prove that Samsung have used the Apple design not the Compaq design, because as long as there is a design from (compaq or Fidler for ex.) which is open to all, nobody can claim that there is someone infringe his design as long as his design is itself similar to another open design.
This judge should take a lesson in Logic before she came to rule a case in multi-billions dollar.
Preventing Samsung to show their evidence , I believe , is a clear proof that a pre-decision against Samsung is already taken in dark rooms, and everyone in these day has a price.

It's always funny when the comment section is more interesting than the article itself.
