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.

but trials are instead decided by a qualified judge or panel of judges.


Jury trials is one of those foreign concepts I just can't wrap my brain around, no matter how much I try. A bunch of idio... Sorry, "peers', who have no desire to do what they do, get to decide guilty or no. Even if you only have a tiny modicum of knowledge about the workings of the human mind, you should know full well how utterly nutterly butterly this is.

Every person who ever ends up in court - traffic violation or murder - should be judged by people who know their shit and who are trained to do so - not by a bunch of bored morons.
