Samsung's top lawyer says Apple won't see a dime from the latest verdict
Quinn believes that Apple might not even see 1 red cent of the award. Samsung plans on appealing the verdict. As for the $930 million that Apple won in the first trial, Quinn sees that figure reduced drastically on appeal, if not completely overturned. And that leads the attorney to make his grand statement that Apple has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on these trials with nothing to show for it.
According to the attorney, the patent war is fizzling out. Still, Quinn doesn't have a precise time period when the battles will end. Unlike the settlement between Nokia and HTC, which the latter was forced into because a German court had won four injunctions against the manufacturer, Apple and Samsung do not seem close to any type of settlement, Quinn notes. As the recent trial was coming to a conclusion, Judge Lucy Koh asked both sides to explore mediation again.
The attorney is obviously "talking his position," as he does have a bias here. But in his heart, he thinks that eventually "...even [CEO] Tim Cook, has got to realize this is a fruitless endeavor. I think everyone's tired of it. ... Reason must prevail at some point."
