If Apple used a slide of the F700 in its own testimony, I fail to see why Samsung couldn't do the same since it was their own phone. Who cares if it was "too late" in the discovery process? Once Apple used it, it's fair game. This whole thing sounds suspiciously biased.
It absolutely is. Not only that, but she allowed new evidence to be introduced in Apple's case when the witness took the stand and showed a ton of photos.
And btw, the reason she is all upset is because the public will see she's a paid/corrupt judge who works for the interest of Apple (hint: she worked for a law firm representing Apple before she was a judge - the law firm was Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati in Palo Alto) and has huge personal benefits for enforcing patent system as it is because she gains to profit from it as she is a patent lawyer too.
From 2002 until 2008, Koh worked as a litigation partner representing technology companies in patent, trade secret and commercial civil matters
Not to mention that she herself denied Samsung when they requested secrecy in evidence, so I don't know what the hell is she raging about. Here read for yourself:
In an order handed down late Tuesday U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh rejected requests from Apple and Samsung to keep sensitive company data from being released to the public saying that both companies "overdesignated" what documents should be kept confidential.
So she basically told them.. ah no.. you can't keep this info confidential and it has to be public and now when the information is public and is actually DISMISSED as evidence she gets into a hissy fit.
She'll do everything she can for Apple to win.. just watch.
Denying Samsung a crucial evidence that completely destroys Apple's argument even if it's late is unacceptable and basically shows that she's absolutely biased.
She should have recused herself from this case considering how many connection she has with this whole case, the participants (like Apple) and what the lawsuit is about.
