Jury Foreman Now Under Scrutiny In Samsung-Apple Case

Nov 12 2012, 9:43pm CST | by

The story just keeps getting more interesting

Remember that day when the verdict came in for the massive lawsuit between Samsung and Apple in the US? Ah yes, we remember it like it was only a matter of weeks ago. At the time, it felt like there was a sense of closure, but at the same time everyone knew this story was far from over.

Now, the latest controversy comes regarding the foreman of the jury, who apparently may have had a conflict of interest in the case. It turns out the lucky man who helped mold technology law history, Velvin Hogan, was himself sued by a company that has a strategic partnership with Samsung.

Hogan was previously employed by Seagate, but after he failed to pay a promissory note that was issued by Seagate, the company sued him. Hogan filed bankruptcy.

Samsung thinks that is a terrible connection to have, since it is the single largest direct shareholder of Seagate. This could lead to a completely new trial, as Judge Lucy Koh said she will take the evidence into consideration.

At issue is whether or not this information should have been disclosed during voir dire, which is the process during which prospective jurors are interviewed to determine if they can be unbiased.

Koh wrote in her recent order that the court will listen to arguments "of whether the jury foreperson concealed information during voir dire, whether any concealed information was material, and whether any concealment constituted misconduct."

"An assessment of such issues is intertwined with the question of whether and when Apple had a duty to disclose the circumstances and timing of its discovery of information about the foreperson," she wrote.

It then proceeds by noting that now, “it’s not being dismissed by competitors, it’s ...
