The jury in Apple’s patent infringement trial against Samsung will be made up of Apple supporters, who have long lobbied for a “strong, independent” jury and an “expert panel” to hear the case.
The jury in the case, set to begin next month, will be led by former Justice Department lawyer Mark Geragos, who won the Apple case.
He is now a partner at Jenner & Block LLP, which represents the company in a patent infringement case.
A member of the jury will be selected by the judges, who will select the members of the panel, according to Bloomberg News.
If you’re looking for a solid choice of judges for a case with a strong, independent jury, the jury selection is an ideal one.
I’m excited for the jury.
I’ve been a fan of Mark Gerges work for many years, and I look forward to his selection.
However, the question remains: will Apple be able to convince the jury to believe that Samsung’s copying is not only illegal, but also unethical?
“I don’t think there’s any doubt that Samsung has engaged in a massive conspiracy to destroy Apple,” Geragos said in a recent speech.
“The evidence demonstrates that Samsung deliberately copied Apple’s technologies in order to achieve its goals of market dominance and patent monopolization.
The evidence also demonstrates that there is a conspiracy to undermine the market for Apple products.”
In the case of Samsung, the government says that Apple is infringing on its patents because it made the “Samsung Smart Keyboard” and “Samsung Touchwiz” features that Samsung sold to its rivals.
Apple and Samsung are not the only companies that have been accused of patent infringement.
Google is accused of stealing ideas and designs from other companies and using the ideas to make its own Android phones.
“Apple has an uphill battle on its side,” said Steven Green, an associate professor at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law.
“[The] issue is the scope of the conspiracy to take a competitor’s intellectual property and then manufacture and market it.
If they can convince the jurors that they’re not engaging in a conspiracy, then the court can say, ‘Well, let’s not go there.'”
For those who aren’t tech savvy, the court has ruled that the patent infringement claims against Google and Samsung could be brought under Section 107 of the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
“The USPTO has not always taken patent cases seriously, but its record on these matters is spotless,” Green told Business Insider.
But the government has already said that the Samsung patent infringement could still stand up in court.
Judge James Robart, who presides over the US patent office, has been a vocal advocate for Apple and its products.
He has already ruled that Samsung is not entitled to a jury trial in the US.
For now, the judge is keeping his focus on Apple’s patents, which he has said could be worth billions of dollars.
Robart has also ruled that Apple can appeal the judge’s ruling to the Supreme Court.
And he has been outspoken about how the government should handle the patent wars.
“If a court were to make a ruling that one party had infringed a patent and that the other party was not infringing that patent, then I think the court would have to conclude that the conduct was clearly intentional and that it was willful,” Robart told the Financial Times in February.
“The government cannot, in my view, say, We have to find the defendants responsible for that, because they did not actually do anything wrong, but that’s not the same thing.
I think that’s a different question, and it’s one that should be raised in court.”
The court will likely hear more than 100 patents before it.
