The Apple v. Samsung Jury Foreman, Vel Hogan, discusses his experience throughout the billion-dollar patent case.
Hogan says that the case was exciting and interesting for him because of his tech background. Some of the jury members weren’t sure how “prior art could either render a patent acceptable or whether it could invalidate it,” Hogan said. However, “I had what we could call an ‘a-ha moment’ and I suddenly decided I could defend this if it was my patent,” Hogan said.
Hogan reported that nobody on the jury owned an iPhone (the attorneys took care of that during jury selection).
He speaks with Emily Chang on Bloomberg Television’s “Bloomberg West.”
