“After 11 PM local time on Monday, Samsung started yet another attempt to, as Apple called the previous one, ‘delay and derail’ the limited damages retrial scheduled for November in the first Apple v. Samsung litigation in the Northern District of California,” Florian Müller writes for FOSS Patents. “Last week Samsung complained that Apple’s new damages expert has arrived at ‘vastly greater damages’ and asked the court to vacate all deadlines in the case. Apple replied on Friday (the ‘delay and derail’ quote was from that reply).”
“amsung yesterday, in addition to the motion this present post is primarily about, reinforced that motion to toss the existing schedule, alleging in a reply (which it can only file with permission from the court) that Apple has ‘flagrantly violated’ the case management order governing preparation of the limited retrial,” Müller writes. “Apple opposes that the court even allow the filing of that reply.”
Müller writes, “The new motion relates to the signature rubber-banding (or, as I like to call it, ‘overscroll bounce’) patent, U.S. Patent No. 7,469,381 on ‘list scrolling and document translation, scaling, and rotation on a touch-screen display,’ which has won Apple several court rulings literally around the globe (most recently in Japan) and is one of the six Apple patents a jury last summer found infringed by Samsung.”
