Judge Lucy Koh has been making waves for the way she’s handled the Apple v Samsung patent case. Plenty of internet analysts have accused her of being on Apple’s payroll, hating Android, got a mad hurt on for Samsung, etc. After her latest display of judicial might, one might begin to wonder if she hates both parties.
Apple presented to the judge a whopping 75 page brief detailing over 22 witnesses they *could* call for rebuttal for any of Samsung’s case. Her Honor gave Apple a verbal thrashing, ending with the soon to be a meme comment - ”unless you’re smoking crack you know these witnesses aren’t going to be called!” Apple’s attorney denied the use of crack with a well thought out lawyer type comment - ”First, your honor, I’m not smoking crack. I can promise you that.” The legal team then promised to cut down the list to a more time responsible length.
As both parties continued to bicker back and forth, Judge Koh lost her temper once more - ”I’m billing time because you all are being unreasonable”. Both Apple and Samsung will lose precious time in front of the jury arguing their case because the judge was tired of the back and forth. You would think both would tone it down, if they want to win that is.
