Next Apple versus Samsung trial, set for 2014, could be delayed or canceled

permanent bans against several of Sammy's devices, and the appeals court won't reach a decision until September. The next trial is supposed to start in March 2014 and revolves around the '604 patent known as the Siri patent which deals with universal search. "I just don't know if we really need two cases on this," said the judge, who spoke with both sides on Thursday in a San Jose, California, federal court. Koh says that a final ruling from the federal appeals court would cover both lawsuits which would mean that the 2014 trial would not be necessary.
Apple attorney William Lee argues that both cases should proceed as planned since each case deals with a different patent. Samsung attorney Victoria Maroulis disagrees, saying that there is substantial "overlap" between the two cases. Koh asked attorney's for both sides to discuss the idea and report back to her on March 7th. Koh also asked, "I assume there have been no further settlement discussions or at least none that have gone anywhere?" Apple's attorney Lee responded by saying, "The answer to the last question is, that's correct."
PLEASE CANCEL AND ENOUGH WITH THIS B.S. can we just get back too making good TECH PHONES?

With more than 100 bIllions in their warchest they are unlikely to stop their bulls**t lawsuits. What gets to me however is their CEO Tim Cook pretending that he don't approve those lawsuits only to have more of them under he's charge. B.S

If apple and samsung were grade school kids that's exactly what their parents would tell them and it would end then and there. Sadly these too companies are too busy throwing hissy fits instead of using common sense and reason.

Apple should file an advanced complaint since the S4 and the Note 3 is a blatant copy of their iPhone....;-)

Judge Koh doesn't want a repeat of the last psychodrama. She is going to do everything in her power to avoid a second trial. Expect her to dismiss the second litigation without prejudice. Apple can (and will) appeal her decision. The decision on the dismissal appeal will not be handed down until after the appeals court has made their ruling on the first lawsuit. 2013 isn't going to be a great year for Apple on the litigation front. Time to start innovating. Like with an update to the iOS UI.

Gaawwwdd! APPLE stop acting like a bitch who has unresolved issues already!!! You're becoming more and more like the forbidden fruit. Let the lawsuits go, get along like good children and, hopefully, you'll earn fans in our hearts...hopefully.

Samsung won't pay a dime, and as soon as the counter-sue documents are ready (LTE, other patents), Apple will drop legal action entirely. But it's too late, the lawsuit generated $10BIL worth of advertisement for Sammy, and Apple's forced emotional split will result in major supply issues already being reported. They should've never sued someone they depend on, that is just stupid and Tim Cook is already in damage control mode.
