The ongoing legal battle between Apple and Samsung that has spanned almost two years and ten countries is getting repetitive. Both companies continue to make allegations against each other in what has been a back-and-forth lawsuit, accusing the other of violating patents, copying their consumer electronics and many other claims. But the judge that has been dealing with this entire situation since the beginning, U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh, thinks it’s about time for “global peace.”
“I think it’s time for global peace,” US District Court Judge Lucy Koh said after legal teams from Apple and Samsung contested post-verdict motions in her Silicon Valley courtroom for several hours on Thursday. ”Let me hear if there is anything the court can do,” she continued. “It would be good for consumers; good for the industry and good for the parties.”
Samsung has said that is more than willing to reach a settlement with Apple, but suggests that it’s up to the iPhone maker to make the first move. Apple, on the other hand, still appears unwilling to befriend Samsung and believes that the court should back legal remedies that will prevent Samsung from copying its products in the future.
