Samsung asks court to throw out $1.05 billion verdict, saying jury foreman was biased
According to fellow juror Manuel Llagan, Hogan took over the deliberations with his first hand knowledge of patents. Llagan said that Hogan explained the process of obtaining a patent to the rest of the jury. Samsung says that the 67 year-old Hogan used incorrect legal standards as he walked the jury through the case. Hogan refused to comment on the allegations, which Samsung says can only be cured through granting Samsung's request for a new trial.
Some legal experts have criticized the jury in the Apple-Samsung patent case for making the decision to ignore the testimony presented by Samsung showing that there was prior art involved with the design of the Apple iPhone. The prior art defense is commonly used by firms accused of infringing on patents.
