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.

‘Apple Sells Lots of Devices, Pundits See Doom’

Sep 27 2014 1:39pm CDT | Source: Daring Fireball

Busy week for The Macalope: This is classic Apple derangement syndrome. Because one YouTube video maker bent one iPhone and could not bend one other Samsung device, no products competing against Apple are bendable. Not worth acknowledging is the fact that people who did some more rigorous testing say you kinda reall ...

Consumer Reports: iPhone 6 'bending' controversy overblown

Sep 26 2014 10:23pm CDT | Source: MacNN

Adding to new suspicions that some of the "iPhone 6 Plus easily bends" videos appearing on the web may have been staged, Consumer Reports has now weighed in with the results of its own independent testing that largely refutes the claims that the phones can bend easily. After testing both models of new iPhone, as well as some other smartphones and phablets, the lab found that while the new iPhones were indeed less resilient tha ...

NBA’s L.A. Clippers to Ditch iPads After Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer Buys the Team

Sep 26 2014 10:43am CDT | Source: Pad Gadget

I’m not surprised that Steve Ballmer is going to be using Microsoft products with the L.A. Clippers and frankly I don’t think it will make any difference with how well the team performs, but I can’t find a single way that the switch will help the Clippers win a championship. I respect Ballmer for being a brand loyalist and I think he will be good for a franchise in need of a responsible leader but I hope he doesn’t expect all of the players and coaches to gi ...
