Tim Cook to Speak With Samsung CEO Today Prior to Jury Deliberation

Bloomberg writes:

Samsung Electronics Co.’s chief executive officer will talk with his counterpart at Apple Inc. to see whether they can resolve their smartphone patent dispute before a U.S. jury begins deliberating, according to a person familiar with the matter.

As testimony in the patent trial wraps up, Apple and Samsung CEOs Tim Cook and newly appointed Kwon Oh Hyun respectively will hold a phone conversation to see if they can resolve any differences prior to the jury deliberating in the case. Apple is seeking $2.5 billion in damages from Samsung, while the South Korean firm is asking for $399 million in royalties from Apple.
