Samsung rejects 1 billion dollar verdict demands new Apple trial
Samsung has lost patent case against Apple and has to pay amount of 1 billion dollar .This case has taken a new direction as Samsung claim that the foreman of Jury Velvin Hogan who gave verdict in favor of Apple is totally influenced by his personal grudge.Samsung raising the point that Velvin Hogan is a person from whom you can only expect a biased decison and his past is also proving the fact.
Actually the story behind is that Velvin Hogan was sued in 1993 for breach of contract by Seagate a company in which Samsung is a major investor.Samsung said in its filing
Mr. Hogan’s failure to disclose the Seagate suit raises issues of bias that Samsung should have been allowed to explore in questioning
Hogan didn’t answer truthfully during voir dire
One another point to consider is that the attorney who sued Hogan on Seagate’s behalf is married to a partner of the law firm(Quinn Emanuel) that represented Samsung in the case .
Velvin Hogan in his defense came up with the statement
Had I been asked an open-ended question with no time constraint, of course I would’ve disclosed that
I’m willing to go in front of the judge to tell her that I had no intention of being on this jury, let alone withholding anything that would’ve allowed me to be excused
If you want to know my opinion it looks to me that nothing will come out from this patent case as it has tangled so badly and the whole scenario distorted greatly.
