Judge Lucy Koh to preside over second Apple-Samsung damages retrial which starts March 28th

Judge Lucy Koh to preside over second Apple-Samsung damages retrial which starts March 28th
Samsung paid Apple $548 million last month to cover the whittled down damages originally awarded to Apple in 2012. However, there is still the matter of $399 million in damages awarded to Apple that Samsung tried to get overturned on appeal. But Sammy's petition for a hearing en banc (heard by all judges who sit on the court's bench) was denied. The case was sent back to district court where the retrial will take place.

The court has requested that both rivals file a list of the witnesses that they plan on calling during the trial. The lists were turned into U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on Friday. Judge Lucy Koh will once again preside over the trial. She has ordered a March 28th start to the proceedings, and has set aside eight days for the trial to run.

Apple's list indicates that former executive Scott Forstall could be called upon to testify in court. The one time iOS chief  appeared in court on Apple's behalf during the first patent suit damages retrial. Forstall refused to take responsibility for the hot mess that was Apple Maps when it launched, even though it was his department that was in charge of delivering it. As a result, the executive was shown the door at Apple, and removed from the company's board.  

Apple plans on calling to the stand some current Apple executives including VP of iPhone, iPod and iOS Product Marketing Greg Joswiak, and VP of Procurement Tony Blevins. SVP of Worldwide Marketing Phil Schiller ended up on the list of those who might be called as a witness. Samsung also has plans to call some of the past and present Apple executives as witnesses. The company also expects to call a number of its own executives and both sides plan on calling expert witnesses to testify.

Some of the animosity between the two tech giants has faded since the first damages retrial, especially since Samsung continues to be a major supplier of parts for Apple's iOS devices. Even so, the trial promises to be a media circus once again.

I am going to go off post and post some exclusive news about the new Samsung s7 The news is from my carphone contacts 2 sizes 5.1 and 5.5 in the uk comes with Samsung CPU Both with 4gb of ram And this is the big one sd card support And the 2nd big one and the Apple under cut, they are only stocking 1 model type and that 64gb, 5.1 prices same as 16gb iPhone and 5.5 s7 prices same as iPhone plus 16gb, no joke Please note the 1 64gb model I am on about the uk only what they offer in China may be less, but I think it will be the same for the USA, please note I be thinking they doing this to save cash so they do not need to stock more than 1 model Also this is why all the models that have been in testing have all had 64gb

Can't be sure about that. Let's simply wait for the S7's release. We'll then confirm it.

This judge is an paid Apple shill. Even Obama is on a payroll. Bring these cases to the UK if Samsung wants to see any semblance of what fairness might be.

Huh? Look at who is correcting people's grammar! The one who claims to never misspell. Teach yourself first, before correcting others! http://www.phonearena.com/news/Report-Oracle-attorney-says-that-Google-has-made-22-billion-in-profits-from-Android_id77622/comments/page/2 Your post of #2: "Get ready to right that check Google." Sorry, it's the word *write* which is suitable in that phrase, not *right*. And there also should be a comma (,) after the "check". Or was that another way of Einstein? SMH

That would actually be, (He needs) to fix his English. You silly little, no life having trolls crack me up. As you were.

It's not about trolling, but exposing what you do: you call people out and bash them of their grammer and misspelling, yet making the exact same errors!

26. Hexa-core

Posts: 2131; Member since: Aug 11, 2015

I've told you several times that I can admit to be able to commit typing errors, and I've encouraged you to stop claiming to be perfect. Where's the trolling in that? You call all those who confront you "trolls", even when you're guilty in the arguement!

he is a low life troll, who thinks that he is a VIP and can show arogance anytime to anyone... he shows arogance for nothing... I was cool with him until he showed his ugly arogent face for nothing... any way this is life and we have to tackle animals sometime... I hope he will fix his english soon

Grammer LMAOOOOO! He actually put "grammer" lol. I'm done with it lol. GRAMMAR!!!

The difference is that I have openly stated that I am able to commit typing errors and I do not insult people of their misspelling, unlike you - you bash people and denied the "thsi" misspelling!!! That's the difference!!! You get it yet? SMH
