Could an end to the grueling patent slugfest between Samsung and Apple be drawing near? According to FOSS Patents, the two sides have agreed to arrange a sit-down meeting between company CEOs that should occur at some point during the next 90 days. We’re not completely out of the legal woods, though, as both sides would have their attorneys present and the little chat would be overseen by a magistrate judge. The goal of the meeting will be to reach some sort of settlement that could result in the end of several ongoing lawsuits around the globe.

It has been suggested that this isn’t the first time an out of court settlement has been attempted to be reached, but the inclusion of Samsung and Apple CEOs suggests the matter may be getting more serious consideration this time around.
