We heard recently that Apple and Samsung would be going back to court over their previous patent lawsuit. Samsung has challenged the damages that were awarded to Apple in the previous trial. The two company’s has been in discussions in an attempt to settle the issue, although this did not happen.
The two companies have now been to court to set a date for the next trial, the hearing was overseen by Judge Lucy Koh who has dealt with the previous cases between Apple and Samsung. Judge Koh has told the two companies that she is looking to get things resolved in the latest trial, you can see what she had to say below.
“I would prefer to not keep doing this until I retire,” she said at the hearing Wednesday. “I would like this to be some closure for all of us.”
The dispute between Apple and Samsung has been going on since 2012, so you can see how Judge Koh is probably getting a little fed up of having to deal with the dispute between the two companies. Apple and Samsung will now return to court on the 14th of May 2018. Lets hope that they can sort things out this time once and for all.
