Samsung Says Apple’s Demand for Sanctions is SHAMEFUL
Samsung has filed a proposed order to strike down Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) request for sanction against the South Korean company in their patent infringement trial in San Jose, California. Apple had asked the court for an opinion in its own favor after Samsung sent out court-excluded evidence to members of the media.

Samsung said Apple was seeking an “unprecedented sanction of outright dismissal of Samsung’s defenses to its design patent claims, in the guise of an alleged recommendation about Samsung’s release of information that was already publicly available.”
The Korean company added that Apple’s request was an “affront to integrity of the jury” because it presumed the jury would violate the court’s instructions of not reading media reports related to the case.
On Tuesday, Samsung had released an email to the media containing slides showing an idea visualized by former Apple designer Shin Nishibori for a Sony smartphone. Judge Lucy Koh, who is presiding over the case, asked Samsung lawyer John Quinn for an explanation. The Korean company had also posted the exhibits on document-sharing website Box.com, but has now taken it down, according to Apple Insider.
