Samsung Request For Apple Re-Trial in California Rejected

Samsung claimed juror misconduct


A California judge today denied Samsung's request for a new patent trial against Apple over what Samsung said was juror misconduct.

Judge Lucy Koh was doubtful that jury foreman Velvin Hogan tried to get on the jury because of a long-held grudge against Seagate, a company in which Samsung has a 9.6 percent stake.
