Rejected: Judge Koh denies Samsung's request for a stay of damages retrial
Last week, while the case was going to the jury, the USPTO issued an advisory action which invalidated the '915 pinch-to-zoom patent. Samsung quickly filed for an emergency hearing to stay the trial since the patent is involved in the suit. Samsung says that Apple has only one last place to appeal the decision although the Cupertino based tech giant actually has a few options left open to reverse the USPTO's decision, according to the Judge.
Judge Koh, in rejecting Samsung's request for a stay of the trial, says that Apple could still file a second response to the USPTO's Final Office Action. If that fails, Apple can still go to the Patent Trial and Appeal Board. And if that doesn't give Apple what it wants, it can appeal a PTAB decision in Federal Court.
The Judge finds Samsung's arguments "unconvincing" and says the best course of action is to hand down a final decision in District Court and let Samsung appeal the decision in Federal Court.

Lol whoever Awarded them that patent is retarded. While you're at it, award Ford a patent for a "transportational vehicle with 4 points or entry(doors)"

As far as it goes Samsung wants to keep dragging on with the case, it comes to zero surprise to anyone with half a brain that Sammy just has to pay up. What gives? check it outhttp://cdn1.appleinsider.com/1

That infographic is heavily biased, it doesn't have the Samsung F700, which they showed off in 2006 (before the iPhone) and applied for a design patent (however rejected because HTC had a similar looking phone).

it will go into appeals anyway. Higher court will look at it and think ts worth doing again eventually they will get their way and justifiable since this judge ignored alot of facts

E-mail between Samsung execs : Dude f*!k it, we're copying this phone. We have a design crisis our junk looks like crap and this phone easily trumps the competition. Lets fire this up we'll pay for the damages after we make a name for ourselves...

He doesn't need to express a reason why. Just looking at your posts and your really poor reasoning skills tells us that you are a retard....
17. darkkjedii (Posts: 8943; Member since: 05 Feb 2011)
So are you, we look at your posts too. You're simply mad that he's an apple guy, when people rag on apple you applaud them, but he's gotta be a retard huh? Mr. Pot may I introduce you to Mr. Kettle...

My reasoning is always sound with facts and statistics to back them up. Whenever I trash Apple there is evidence to back up my statements. He just shows an Apple fanboys bias perspective and parades them as facts. Huge difference.
You are pretty bad too at conveniently overlooking ifans being unreasonable.

Oh taters c'mon bro. You say some of the most childish stuff about apple, to ensure green thumbs. Hey today just is Sammy's day...suck it up buddy

And you are an idiot in a fantasy world. Thank God lawyers, judges, look at the evidence, and are not fanboys.

Lmao good one. "Dude f*!k it" I'm rolling picturing Sammy's CEO saying something sooo American. +1 man lol

APPLE leave Sammy alone and innovate, Samsung is not your problem but still living on the past glories of Steve Jobs. Many companies once looked up to you to draw inspiration but that's not the case again. Why is it only in USA that Samsung are guilty of your divine claims? Leave Sammy alone.

Samsung should be filing a motion to have Judge Koh removed from presiding over this trial and over the upcoming trial. She has shown herself to be incompetent at best. She did not do her diligence in making sure all jury members met the requirements to serve, making the foreman biased against one side. She limited both plaintiff and defendant's case presentation and witness examination time. She has been ridiculous all around. It's a billion dollar lawsuit, well now with jury decision multi-million. There is no reason or excuse for the actions she has taken. Both parties should actually be requesting her dismissal as presiding judge. Apple has had over half a billion vacated because of her actions.
