Judge rules that Samsung can take deposition of Schiller and two others
On Thursday, Magistrate Judge Paul Grewal ruled that attorneys for Samsung can take the depositions of Apple's Senior VP for Worldwide Marketing, Phil Schiller, and two other executives. The judge did put a time limit of three hours on the length of the questioning. Samsung is seeking to clarify some comments made by Schiller in favor of banning certain Samsung devices. The products in question were found to have infringed on Apple patents by a jury during the epic Apple-Samsung patent trial.

Samsung says that some comments made by Schiller are "new or in conflict with his testimony at trial," and should be considered by a judge in regard to a possible ban on Samsung products. The deposition must take place no later than Monday. Apple originally fought the request to depose Schiller, saying that he was not an expert witness. The ruling by Judge Grewal comes in response to that filing.

December 6th, a post-trial hearing is due to resolve outstanding issues left over from the trial, including Apple's request to have certain Samsung devices banned in the U.S. and its motion to increase the size of the $1.05 billion damage figure that the jury awarded the Cupertino based firm.

Ask the right questions this time, Samsung.
Also, please make Phil look like the a$$ that he is. Thanks in advance.

No offence, but I feel SS has tried to replicate OG iPhone in the GS series. The patents should be invalidated but SS should pay a $100 million fine.

Then again this was clearly Adolf Hitler's idea, I mean he had his men tattoo SS! Could his family take part in the lawsuit? Lol :)

Um, the patent should be invalidated and others shouldn't be a part of this in the future. But SS should pay for trying to replicate iphone in the first place. All Android UIs including stock are pretty distinctive from ios.

i honestly think that samsung didn't mean to copy. even if they did, only the original galaxy s looks remotely like the iphone. Its successors looks much better than the iphone IMHO.

"Apple originally fought the request to depose Schiller, saying that he was not an expert witness."

Remember this guys when Apple unveils another product and talks about how great and magical it is.

They are world's biggest liars who have enough power to tell white lies to the whole world.

I'm not a fanboy, I used to like apple a few months ago. Their own actions converted me.
