Samsung is alleging juror misconduct in new court filings asking a federal judge to throw out Apple’s billion-dollar jury verdict and allow a new trial, reports “CNET.”
In a variety of court documents, Samsung’s attorneys list a series of cases, including ones that federal courts in California must follow, in which juror misconduct prompted a new trial. Their apparent argument: interviews that jurors in the landmark case gave to news organizations provide evidence of misconduct serious enough to have influenced the verdict, notes “CNET.” For more info go to http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-57519238-37/samsung-raises-jury-misconduct-in-bid-for-new-apple-trial/ .
This is all part of the ongoing, global legal battle. Apple and Samsung have filed more than 30 lawsuits against each other across four continents. For example, Apple alleges that Samsung copied the slide-to-unlock technology of its iPhone and iPad devices.
