    Default Alleged Jury Misconduct to be Probed in Apple, Samsung Trial


    Did Apple have an unfair advantage in the trial during which Apple prevailed to the tune of $1 billion dollars? That's the burning question that will, in fact, be explored by a federal court in the coming days.

    Federal District Judge Lucy Koh is agreeable about looking into if and how the jury foreman in Apple v. Samsung "concealed information" as the jury selection process got under way. This process will help expose the existence of any potential misconduct.

    Samsung argued that jury foreman Velvin Hogan didn't disclose during jury selection that he had been sued by Seagate, his former employer. Samsung pointed out in court papers that Seagate and Samsung have a "substantial strategic relationship." The litigation with Seagate led Hogan to file for personal bankruptcy in 1993. Samsung maintains Hogan should have informed the court about the case.

    Samsung, it goes without saying, hopes the $1 billion decision will be reversed. But legal experts who are monitoring the situation say its inordinately difficult for a jury verdict to be overturned in response to such a development.

    But Samsung maintains it didn't get a fair trial. And that is what the tech company is pinning its hopes to at the moment.

    Of course it didn't get a fair trial. It was in Apples hometown with Apple fanboys as the jury. I bet all the jury owned iPhones and none owned Galaxy S's.

    If they want to get a fair trial then it needs to be on common ground like in England or France where there not either ones hometown.

    Yeah that's smart, hold a lawsuit over a US patent in a different country... Thinking outside the box are we?

    When the foreman fought so hard on a case, one should know something is up.
    Glad Samsung lawyers investigated the situation, and I hope the judge will see it and have a new trial.
