“Two days ahead of the first post-trial hearing in the patent infringement fight between Apple and Samsung, a California judge has signaled to lawyers for both companies that she expects them to follow her instructions and work by her rules,” Martyn Williams reports for IDG News Service. “In an order signed on Tuesday, Judge Lucy Koh of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, admonished both sides for their filings with the court.”
“Judge Koh had previously imposed page limits on the filings each company could make as part of the post-trial process,” Williams reports. “‘Despite this clear direction, both parties submitted voluminous documents with their post-trial motions,’ Koh wrote on Tuesday’s order. ‘The Court plans to strike from the record all of the material submitted in violation of the Court’s Order.’ She gave lawyers for both companies until Friday to refile their documents in accordance with her rules.”
