Judge Koh to hear Samsung's complaint about the alleged bias of the jury foreman

he filed for bankruptcy in 1993. There is no shame there, many Americans have filed for bankruptcy. The problem is that Hogan did not mention this information during voir dire when the prospective jury members are picked and questioned under oath. When Samsung filed with the court to request a new trial, it said that the Seagate connection was something that it should have had a chance to explore with Hogan while the juror was under oath.
Furthermore, as confirmed by other jurors, Hogan took over the jury room during deliberations as he claimed to have superior knowledge of the patent process which he went through to receive a patent for "video-compression software". Despite this alleged first-hand knowledge of patent law, it appears that the legal standards that Hogan impressed the jury with were incorrect and might have led the jury to come up with a decision based on incorrect law. For his part, Hogan says that Samsung should have known about his relationship with Seagate because of his relationship with an attorney from Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan LLP, the same firm used by Samsung in the suit against Apple.
After just 21 hours of deliberations, quick for such a complex case, Apple won a jury award of $1.05 billion in the law suit and post-trial hearings are set for December 6th.

I was expecting the Circuit Court of Appeal to decide this matter. Maybe Judge Koh beats them to the punch? Sammy hasn't paid Apple a dime yet. Somehow, I suspect Apple never gets a dime from Sammy. Maybe a middle-fingered wave, but not a dime.

I am serious. The amount of blunders I recall from memory and mention the sammy's lawyers seemed to spend their time cross examine witnesses rather than making their own points and in the end not having time to make a final argument. I am on there side. They need to have their lawyers come better.

Even the biggest diehard apple supporters are realizing the verdict isn't going to stand. They whine and cry it's not right, but know what's coming. Check out the Gnome over on BGR. You can't find a bigger apple sycophant, and even he knows it's over.

the result from the court that time was a bit weird, most of apple's case which contains small unimportant patents was granted while sammy's case which contains big & heavy technology patents such as picture attachments in e-mail was denied without any further explaination
