“As the Apple-Samsung patent trial wound down in San Jose on Monday, the companies each submitted a proposed juror questionnaire, an exhaustive set of questions members of the jury must answer as they determine the validity of the multiple patents in question in the case,” Mike Isaac reports for AllThingsD.
“Their ultimate fate: Trudging through a document dump of the worst kind — one for a patent trial,” Isaac reports. “There are, of course, two lawsuits in question: Apple’s suit against Samsung, and Samsung’s countersuit against Apple, so the jury will have to review both companies’ claims for merit. That means sorting through the 20-odd Samsung-manufactured cell phones and tablets and checking off whether each violates one of the handful of patents in question.”
Isaac reports, “It also means deliberating on damages award amounts, should either side score a victory.”
