The jury is scheduled to start deliberating tomorrow, but Judge Lucy Koh was hopeful that both Samsung and Apple could cut a deal. Apparently both parties did attempt it over the weekend after Judge Koh asked the parties to simplify the dispute as well as ask the chief executives to talk it over one more time. Not surprisingly, nothing was resolved.
Both Apple and Samsung made a joint filing with the court that said, “The parties have met and conferred about case narrowing, but have not been able to narrow their cases further.”
I have to be honest with you. I’m glad they didn’t cut a deal. Lets find out if Samsung really did anything wrong here. I for one think that they were inspired by Apple, and not guilty of actually copying them. Unfortunately Apple owns patents that are ridiculous in itself, so Samsung could be found guilty. That would be very sad to me, and that’s not because I’m an Android fan. It’s because this type of thing happens in all industries, and I’m not sure why Apple thinks they are different from any other company out there. If things were the other way around, I wouldn’t want Apple to lose either. It’s just plain wrong.
