Apple Says It Was Unaware of Samsung Jury Foreman’s Suit $AAPL #FAIL

Apple Says It Was Unaware of Samsung Jury Foreman’s Suit $AAPL #FAIL

Apple Inc. (AAPL) said it wasn’t aware during trial that the foreman of the jury that issued a $1.05 billion verdict against Samsung Electronics Co. was involved in a lawsuit with his former employer, Seagate Technology Inc.
Samsung asked Apple to disclose when it first learned about the litigation between the jury foreman, Velvin Hogan, and Seagate. Apple responded in a filing yesterday in federal court in San Jose, California.
Samsung is attempting to get the Aug. 24 verdict thrown out based on claims the trial was tainted by the foreman’s failure during jury selection to tell U.S. District Judge Lucy H. Koh, who presided over the case, that he filed for bankruptcy in 1993 and was sued by Seagate.

  1. and just what does Seagate have to do with Samsung or Apple ?

    Would have been better if any such 'tainting' relationship had been described here ...
