Judge Lucy Koh says she's tired of presiding over Apple v. Samsung; new trial begins on May 14th
The trial will start on May 14th, and as we pointed out the other day, Judge Lucy Koh will be presiding over it. This will be the eighth year that this case has been active and Koh is getting tired of the whole affair. "I would prefer to not keep doing this until I retire," she said at a hearing yesterday. "I would like this to be some closure for all of us." Koh says that she will not allow for a complete "Do-Over" as far as the damages are concerned.
While the Supreme Court changed what courts will focus on when determining patent infringement damages (which should result in a refund check written to Samsung by Apple), the highest court in the land did not leave a tutorial on how to compute the award. That task will fall on the district court to come up with, along with an amount that hopefully both Apple and Samsung can live with. This way we might be able to finally say "that's a wrap" when it comes to Apple v. Samsung.
