Judge Wants "Global Peace" Between Apple, Samsung: "Is There Some Endpoint Here?"

The two companies continue to battle in courts over patents for things like touchscreen scrolling


Despite a call from the bench for "global peace," Apple and Samsung continued to slug it out over patent issues in court late Thursday. The two companies continued their fights about damages, the possibility of an injunction and the outcome of the August jury trial that put Samsung on the hook for $1.05 billion in damages to Apple.

Lawyers for both sides stuck to their guns even as Judge Lucy Koh — who presided over the jury case as well — poked holes in their arguments and expressed frustration with the drawn-out dispute.
