Yesterday we heard that Samsung had tried to submit some evidence in their trial with Apple in the US, after the evidence was turned down, it was then leaked to the press which could end up getting Samsung in trouble.
We heard that Judge Lucy Koh, who is dealing with the press is less than pleased with Samsung for leaking the evidence to the press, and now Apple is seeking sanctions over Samsung’s statement.
“This deliberate attempt to influence the trial with inadmissible evidence is both improper and unethical,” Apple lawyer William Lee wrote in the letter. “Apple will be filing today an emergency motion for sanctions and other relief that may be appropriate,”
The evidence which is being heard at the moment is without the Jury, and it was alleged that Samsung are trying to get the evidence which was disallowed to the jury members through the press, if true it is not exactly the smartest move by Samsung.
