Apple and Samsung, two companies that have a history of duking it out in the courtroom over patents, have decided to try mediation instead for their latest patent case. The report comes by way of Reuters, and was confirmed by both CEOs.
Apple Inc and Samsung Electronics have agreed to attend a mediation session to be held on or before February 19, as they prepare to clash in court in March over smartphone patents.
Apple CEO Tim Cook and Samsung CEO Oh-Hyun Kwon will attend the session with in-house lawyers only, according to a Wednesday court filing. Their legal teams had met on January 6 to “discuss settlement opportunities,” the filing read.
