Samsung destroyed evidence twice, Apple wants to tell the jury

Apple wants to inform the jury in Apple v. Samsung that not once, but twice Samsung destroyed email evidence pertaining to a jury trial; once was when email that was supposed to be saved for the current trial was deleted and the same thing happened in 2004 during a different case...

Many companies have this policy but I've never heard of something as extreme as 20 days like Samsung has. I however find it hard to believe that someone at the level of a Principle Engineer didn't backup his emails to PST files or Islands I believe they are called in the lotus notes world. Most of these blame should be on this particular engineer as anyone in engineering would know have everything in writing because when bullets start flying later on they are your ammo.

I just don't understand why apple is wasting millions and millions of dollars trying to run Samsung into the ground... Why not take those funds and invest them into jumping ahead of the curve instead of just catching up every November.

Not even catching up, just staying a step ahead of obsolescence

Nothing is deleted on the Internet. That email can still be archived somehow.

Android fans do you think Samsung is killing their own case by repeatedly not following judges orders?

U know judge koh is asian right? And samsung is south korea not north. Do a little history before you comment bout a company origin.

Well, if Apple wants to bring something not related to the case on hand, Samsung should be allowed to do the same. It's not like there aren't skeletons in Apple's closet.
With Judge Lucy Koh presiding over the bench though, I doubt they are given the reciprocation.
Koh's gotta go. She's either blatantly for Apple or just totally inept. Samsung's well on their way to botching their own case, we don't need the judge ushering it along.

Because of Koh's Korean descent, I believe what she is doing is trying to show that she isn't going to favor Samsung because of her heritage, but in the end that is still a travesty of justice when a judge is partial to one side over another in the blatant manner she has shown.
Then to, there's also her husband's business ties. That should have been deemed a conflict of interest from the start.
At best this should be declared a mistrial, at worst Lucy should be removed from the bench.

LOL,. there's nothing left original in this world,... all just innovations,... and if your product is great there is nothing to worry about,.... even they copy it,... just create a new one that will stand-out the rest,... ----anyway they just want our money----

omfg, seriously now its a little annoying, theyre like some little kids, the judge should just dismiss the case with a big STFU and DEAL WITH IT
