Apple has filed a request over Samsung's decision to release rejected trial evidence to the media, asking Judge Lucy Koh to respond by issuing a verdict that says Apple's patents are valid and Samsung infringed on them. The statement notes that Samsung has been sanctioned several times, most recently for destroying evidence, claiming the company may even welcome a mistrial in order to further its "strategy of delay" and make it more likely jurors would have seen the excluded evidence Samsung leaked. Apple also says Samsung leaked the evidence without press asking for it, something that was true in our case.
"Apple respectfully requests that the Court sanction Samsung by granting judgment in favor of Apple."
Because of this, Apple says that making a judgment and dismissing the case is the only way to "fully rectify the harm that Samsung and Mr. Quinn have caused." Rejecting the idea of fining Samsung, "Apple respectfully requests that the Court sanction Samsung by granting judgment in favor of Apple on its claim that Samsung infringes Apple’s phone design patents, and granting judgment that those patents are not invalid."
Barring this, Apple wants the court to tell the jury that Samsung "engaged in serious misconduct" and copied the designs in question, then stop Samsung from offering any more evidence about the Sony-style design documents it leaked. The "Sony design exercise" evidence has already been rejected, but it's unlikely that Judge Koh will rule in Apple's favor in order to sanction Samsung.
