  1. It makes sense for Judge Koh to bar Samsung from presenting Sohn as a witness, since Samsung tried for months to keep Apple from calling him as a witness; they can’t just change their mind now. But disallowing Samsung from presenting Park makes no sense at all; Park designed the F700! It doesn’t matter if Park didn’t design the phones Apple is suing over, Park designed the phone that shows that Samsung was working on the same stuff as the iPhone simultaneously with Apple.

    1. Yet she allowed Apple to use an ‘expert witness’ that had never ever design a phone at all.
