Judge: Apple's lawyer is "smoking crack" with new legal move

The Samsung-Apple trial is getting close to the finish line but it sounds like the presiding judge in the case wishes it was over right now. US District Judge Lucy Koh reportedly yelled at one of Apple's lawyers in the San Jose, California courtroom today due to a particular case of legal maneuvering.

News.com reports that Apple is trying to bring in as many witnesses as it can before its required 25 hours for its part of the case are up. Apple has just a few hours left and its legal team tried to present the judge with 75 pages of briefings for over 20 witnesses it wants to bring to court.

That move was the one that set Judge Koh off. She reportedly yelled at Apple attorney Bill Lee, saying, "I mean come on. 75 pages! 75 pages! You want me to do an order on 75 pages, (and) unless you're smoking crack, you know these witnesses aren't going to be called when you have less than four hours." Lee reportedly answered Koh back with, "Your honor, I can assure you, I'm not smoking crack."

So, that must have been fun for the jury to watch today. Hopefully, Koh won't "Hulk" out, and Lee won't try any more "smoking crack" legal moves, before closing arguments in the case are made sometime next week. Judge Koh has already strongly suggested that Apple and Samsung settle their differences before the jury renders their verdict.
