Judge refuses to let Apple add Samsung Galaxy S4 to patent trial sequel
posted by Alan F. / Jun 27, 2013, 1:48 AM
Judge Grewal was a little snarky in his comments to both firms, but directed most of the edge in his comments toward Apple. Adding another device to the case would tax the court's time and would take away access to the legal system for others who need legal recourse, according to the judge. If you think that Judge Grewal is showing no patience for the inevitable drama that occurs when these two rivals appear together in a courtroom, you might want to look back at Judge Koh's occasionally harsh tone toward attorney's of both firms during last year's case.
Meanwhile, Apple attorney Josh Krevitt threatened that excluding the Samsung Galaxy S4 from the suit would require Apple to file a new lawsuit because the Samsung devices covered in the second trial will be out of date once the trial starts next year.

Everybody gets inspiration from everybody, see iOS7 (or um, iPod that's a 100% design ripoff). So it's time to ged rid of the ridiculous patents and fine for the obvious was, say a $100M for the iPhone lokking Sammy's and that's it. It's all getting boring anyway.

Apple is pathetic. Its only suing Samsung coz it knows it is the only major competitor eating its market share & only samsung has been responsible for downfall of Apple in recent past. If Apple really wanted to drag a party in court for copying, why apple didnt sue Sony for creating new xperia devices which have glass on both sides.? Why didnt sue HTC for the same reason? Apple was Samsung's biggest customer buying displays, microchips, etc. Apple had no problem with samsung when it launched Smartphones. Only when it started dominating, Apple had problems. I'm sure if HTC/Sony start dominating in market eating Apple's share, it will sue them as well. LOL... Get Well Soon Apple.. :-P.!!!!!!!!!

Samsung Galaxy S4 has not nothing that it is similar or it seems like Iphone or ios. I don't understand the stupidity of Apple to ad galaxy S4 to their lawsuit against Samung. It's for to implicate with Samsung one more time. Apple, why you don't go to bother the devil? Apple go to hell!! And they only implicate with Samsung!!

It would be one thing if these companies were struggling and needed a court win to survive but neither of them are anywhere close to being strapped for cash these days. Both parties need to grow up and let us, the consumers decide what we want to buy, not the courts.

What a complete waste of time for Apple to do this... There's no freaking point when Apple already has added way more devices than Samsung and is attempting to stop Samsung's sales and letting the consumers to have the iOS stuff over Samsung Android...
