Recently, a judge asked Apple and Samsung to reduce the number of patent infringement claims they had filed against each other.
On Tuesday, 8 May 2012, Apple and Samsung capitulated a tad to one another with regard to how many patent infringement claims each is presenting in their California legal showdown.
As of Monday, Apple told the US District Court for the Northern District of California that the company was willing to drop roughly half of its assortment of patent-infringement claims. Samsung offered to drop five of its 12 patent infringement claims.
Last week, Lucy Koh effectively demanded that two tech giants slash their mounting piles of claims.
“I think that’s cruel and unusual punishment to a jury, so I’m not willing to do it. If you’re going to trial in July, this is not going to be acceptable.”
The fighting between Apple and Samsung has been curtailed with regard to the number of issues both companies are fighting over. However, it does not look like Apple and Samsung are truly any closer to resolving this matter in a timely fashion.
