Apple-Samsung Foreman Says Evidence Was Overwhelming

Says intellectual property deserves to be protected.


Velvin Hogan, the jury foreman in the Apple-Samsung patent infringement case, has been making the media rounds following the jury's stunning verdict last week.

In an interview Monday on Bloomberg TV, the 67-year-old electrical engineer explained the nine-member jury's process during its three days of deliberation. Hogan said the jury was "inundated with evidence" and revealed that the youngest member of the jury, a 20-year-old, was the one who provided most of the debate during deliberations.

The jury—consisting of seven men and two women—ultimately decided to award Apple $1.05 billion in damages.
