Of the voluminous amount of evidence, what specifically convinced Ilagan? It seems that the emails that Samsung executives sent to each other asking which of Apple's features they should add to their own devices was a smoking gun in his mind. Also leading to his vote against Samsung was the chart showing what the Korean manufacturer's phones looked like prior to the release of the first Apple iPhone, and what they looked like afterward. The juror also felt that Samsung executives testifying via video link up from Korea were dodging questions.
Ilagan said that this chart showing Samsung phone designs prior to and after the iPhone's launch, weighed heavily in his decision
Courtroom action also persuaded Ilagan that Apple had not infringed upon Samsung patents. When Samsung argued that Apple had infringed on the Korean tech firm's patents with the baseband chip on the Apple iPhone and the third iteration of the iPad, Apple attorney's pointed out that a contract signed by Samsung and Intel had a clause that prevented Samsung from suing any company Intel sold the chips to. Apple presented receipts showing that it had bought the chips from Intel.
