Judge denies Apple's bid for Samsung sanctions
Judge denies Apple's demands for trial victory as punishment for Samsung press release
By The Associated Press

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) A judge has denied Apple Inc.'s demands for an immediate victory in a multibillion patent trial as punishment for Samsung Electronics Inc.'s decision to issue a contentious press release on the first day of testimony.

The San Jose Mercury news reported Friday (http://bit.ly/T6ztfV ) that U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh denied Apple's request after polling the nine jurors to determine if they read media accounts based on the press release.

Samsung attorney Michael Quinn authorized the release Tuesday, which complained about Koh's exclusion of evidence favorable to Samsung. The release also included the evidence.



Apple charged the statement was designed to taint the jury. Quinn countered that Samsung has a right to release documents that are publicly available.

Koh says she's satisfied jurors haven't read any reports on the matter.
