Apple accuses Samsung of "spoilation of evidence" in patent case

Apple accuses Samsung of "spoilation of evidence" in patent case
Samsung, like many other companies, apparently has a plan to get rid of emails that take up space on the company's computers. The Korean based firm routinely purges emails from its accounts. But one firm's garbage is another firm's evidence and Apple is accusing Samsung of deleting evidence related to its court battles. Apple filed a motion accusing Samsung of  "spoilation of evidence," saying that its rival (and vendor) destroyed "vast quantities of relevant evidence in blatant disregard of its duty to preserve all such evidence."

Samsung has apparently been behaving badly and last week United StatesDistrict Court Magistrate Judge Paul S. Grewal punished the company for its failure to turn over source code. Two weeks before that, the same Judge admonished the Korean manufacturer for failing to turn over documents it held that mentioned Apple's products. Wouldn't you like to be a fly on the wall when Apple and Samsung sit down on May 21st and May 22nd for their court-ordered mediation talks? source: AllThingsD,JoyofTech
