I’ve got to be honest with you: when I first heard Apple’s demands regarding the evidence Samsung leaked to the media in the case the two are fighting out over the Korean company’s “copying of Apple products”, I was worried. While the request to pretty much have the Judge rule in their favor as a punishment to Samsung felt outlandish, I can’t deny that I wouldn’t have been shocked if Judge Lucy Koh agreed with them.
Fortunately enough, that hasn’t happened. The reason? Only four jurors saw the leaked evidence, and they told the judge it didn’t influence them in any way. The other jurors have been told not to read anything about it. Judge Koh had this to say about her decision to reject Apple’s demands:
“Those remedies are not warranted by the current record. I will not let any theatrics or sideshow distract us from what we are here to do.”
