Apple and Samsung CEOs Meet, Nothing Resolved

Yesterday, the CEOs of Apple and Samsung got together for one final court-mandated meeting to discuss the ongoing legal battle they’re locked in, but anyone hoping for a productive outcome will be sorely disappointed. According to Samsung attorney Kevin Johnson, the two CEOs met but were unable to come to a resolution. The trial will continue, with the closing arguments starting today.

The jurors in the case will be filling out a form, a 22-page document consisting of questions and graphs, in which they’ll decide which devices, if any, they believe infringe on patents and claims. This document is a subject of dispute between the two companies, as are a set of instructions that will be read to the jury.

Samsung did get a small win. Back in July, Magistrate Judge Paul Grewal ruled that the jury would be informed that Samsung improperly handled evidence. Judge Koh, however, felt that Apple had done the same in not properly preserving evidence, and that the jury should be told of that, too. Both sides were then allowed to decide whether the jury should hear anything on the issue at all, since both sides were accused of neglect. Samsung and Apple agreed that the jury wouldn’t hear anything about the issue.

Closing arguments have begun today and jury deliberations are scheduled to begin tomorrow.
