Judge denies Apple request to punish Samsung for leaking evidence; warns against more "theatrics"

0. phoneArena 03 Aug 2012, 18:30 posted on

Friday it was both Apple and Samsung's turn to together feel the wrath of Judge Lucy Koh as the judge first denied Apple's request to sanction Samsung for sending previously excluded evidence to the media; the judge then told both parties that she would not put up with any more "theatrics or sideshows"...

Actually, before you commented, not a SINGLE OTHER PERSON voiced a different general opinion about Koh than that which we have been saying. Most of Koh's decisions in this case have still been ludicrous in their bias against Samsung. Now, finally, today, she has made a correct decision regarding this case. People have said this was a good decision, but not the rest.

Your reading comprehension fails you again, Taco.

So ludicrous decision = anything in Apple's favor

Correct decision = anything in Samsung's favor.

You guys could care less about the facts. Apple could produce an audio recording of Samsung's whole design team admitting to copying the iPhone and you'd still deny Samsung did anything wrong.

Samsung needs to follow the judicial process if they want their evidence introduced. Not my fault or judge Koh's fault they can't do that.

Samsung could produce a video of an Apple CEO stating that Apple has been shameless about stealing great ideas from others and you still wouldn't admit that Apple copies........and that's not a hypothetical.

Regardless, they are facts. If you cared about facts, you'd want them introduced.

Apple was just trying to get the judge to end the case with a bogus summary judgment because of that rejected evidence. Would that be your idea of the "judicial process"? I doubt Samsung, or any normal-minded individual, would want to see it end like that.

Believe it or not, Samsung has been following the process pretty damn well; they are up against a wall with Apple and this judge, so they need to supply irrefutable evidence that they did not copy Apple. Since such evidence was not allowed, they leaked it out to the public, where it had already been in the first place. Apple didn't like it, and neither did the judge...but there was nothing they did (or could have done) to stop it.

This fight is far from over, and both sides are going to keep going at it until they have nothing left. Who knows when that's going to be...

@taco When we first started hearing about Koh a few months back, there were generally positive feelings towards her universally for being aseeimingly fair and not prone to taking for overpaid lawyers' running a b.s. campaign for their corporate overlords. There was even some half-hearted joking that she and the male judge (northern Midwest it east coast I don't recall) made fair enough rulings and cut through the b.s. that they should be candidates for the U.S. Supreme Court. Then Kih started going injunction crazy with the Galaxy Tabs, Nexus, and HTC OneX, and seemed to be under apple's influence, thus incurring disfavor. I'm hoping that was a ruse to put Apple off-guard and that the jury and herself will lay the smackdown on apple.and their childish lawsuit-happy attitudes

And this is how you and folks like you see it:

So ludicrous decision = anything in Samsung's favor

Correct decision = anything in Apple's favor.

So whats the point of these posts? They are worthless. Please dont try to come off like you arent one of PA's biggest Apple fanboys.

Or maybe Apple proved that Samsung is copying and that's why they won all those injuctions.

Koh wants to go to the Supreme Court and a favorable ruling in favor of a supposed AMERICAN company would make her look favorable in the eyes of D.C.

They can't prove anything until the trial. Unfortunately, Samsung aren't being allowed to defend themselves with evidence that not only they, but Sony were working on devices that were rounded corner rectangles prior to the iPhone, and that in fact Apple may have gotten some of their design ideas from Sony.

Regardless how this case turns out, it will continue for years in appeals.

Yeah, except you're full of s**t. I've tested the link on browsers where I'm not signed into Plus, and I can see the picture just fine.

It opens fine in Firefox and Dolphin browsers on my RAZR's ICS and in Safari on my GF's iPad3. This is going to be my last post, though - GF is more important than taco.

The link says," Taco50: What would be great is if Apple can patent their notifications and go after Google."

1. In this quote you acknowledge Apple copies Google.
2. You advocate patent trolling.

If you acknowledge that Apple copies, Steve Jobs admits to shamelessly stealing, why do you continue to go on and on and on and on about the perceived copying of others?
