I'm more bothered that Rick Merritt used the wrong "there" in the Judge Koh quote.

We are talking of claims of $2,5 billion and a lot more at stake for the whole electronics industry regards stiffling innovation with patents that outlive the technology, so it is reasonable that the courts appoint people familiar with patent law to fight patent battles. To exclude prior art that invalidates Apples claims to originality is absurd, no matter how late presented. In fact, the design patents should now be invalidated with publicly available prior art.

Why does the US use Juries for patent trials? Clearly juries on average do not have the necessary knowledge and skills (especially if they are set up in the middle of nowhere!) Any thoughts?

Sounds like this trial would make a great episode for one of those law drama TV shows!

Wow. Sounds like a major screw up by the Samsung legal council.
