Two of those motions were from Samsung asking for relief from previous rulings made by Magistrate Judge Paul Grewal in the run up to this trial. the third motion asked for clarification of Judge Koh's ruling against summary judgment filings. This last ruling had led to the court drawing up a document showing what evidence is allowed and what evidence is excluded.
Although the subject of an injunction by the district court, a stay from a Federal appeals court allows Samsung to continue to sell the Samsung GALAXY Nexus for now
So where does the movie fit in? In challenging the preliminary injunctions against the Samsung GALAXY Tab 10.1 and the Samsung GALAXY Nexus, Samsung referenced clips from 2001: A Space Odyssey and The Tomorrow People but whether it was an intentional omission or a mistake, Samsung never explained what the clips had to do with proving that Apple's patents were invalid or that Samsung did not infringe upon them. Using fictional characters as prior art has been successfully applied but only when the actions and ideas in the fiction match up to the action at the heart of the case. In other words, showing an iPad like device in 2001: A Space Odyssey make show prior art, but that is not what the court wants to see. If in the movie, this iPad-like device was the subject of a patent battle with the same issues as this case, perhaps Judge Koh would have allowed it.
