Legal Lots of news about Apple vs. Samsung (and vice versa) in both the US and Europe today. In the US, judge Koh dealth two blows: one to Samsung (no retrial based on juror misconduct), the other to Apple (no permanent sales ban). In Europe, in the meantime, Samsung announced it will cease all lawsuits injunction requests against Apple... But only in Europe.

Trials have a clear process, and its the job of the Judge to move the ball forward. Samsung had plenty of time to present the prior art using the correct process to do so, but didn't. That's their bad.

If there were no order in the court, these things would drag on for far longer than they have. If (hypothetically speaking here) just being right were enough to win cases, then lawyers wouldn't need to exist.

Samsung's lawyers should have known better, but didn't. Or so the narrative goes. It could be that they're just raising this issue because they lost.

I'm not completely insensitive to Samsung's requests, but I'm increasingly wary about the demonization of the Jury.
