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.

It is a strategic legal maneuver if you wish to appeal to emotion, something a panel of 12 people are more susceptible to.

You do have the right in most jurisdictions to waive a Jury trial.

Jury trials are not as common as people would think, a lot of cases are decided before they even get to trial.
