Submission + - Did Jury Foreman Hogan Influence The Apple vs Samsung Verdict?->

sfcrazy writes: Samsung is clearly accusing Hogan in its recent filing of influencing the jury in favor of Apple. Samsung said in its filing: "Mr. Hogan's own statements to the media suffice if such a showing is required. Once inside the jury room, Mr. Hogan acted as a “de facto technical expert” who touted his high-tech experience to bring the divided jury together. Contrary to this Court's instructions, he told other jurors incorrectly that an accused device infringes a utility patent unless it is “entirely different”; that a prior art reference could not be invalidating unless that reference was “interchangeable”; and that invalidating prior art must be currently in use. He thus failed “to listen to the evidence, not to consider extrinsic facts, [and] to follow the judge’s instructions.”
