/// Apple-Samsung Juror Tells CNET Debate Was "Heated"

August 25, 2012  |  All Things Digital

CNET nabbed an exclusive interview with one of the nine jurors in the high-profile and complex trial. The jury largely handed over a victory to Apple in the patent infringement case, along with an award of just over $1 billion. Manuel Ilagan — who said debates among jurors were “heated,” in spite of the quickness of the verdict — told the CNET that “Samsung’s internal e-mails about incorporating some of Apple’s technology into its devices, and the evasive way Samsung executives answered questions, was damning.” Ilagan also denied that the jury was favoring Apple in any kind of “hometown bias.” “We weren’t going for Apple,” he told CNET. “We weren’t thinking Apple or Samsung.” The interview is well worth a full read here . Reuters also talked to another key juror, its foreman Velvin Hogan, about making sure Samsung knew it had done wrong. Hogan, who holds a patent himself, said the jury “wanted to make sure the message we sent was not just a slap on the wrist. We wanted to make sure it was sufficiently high to be painful, but not unreasonable.” Apple versus Samsung Full Coverage RELATED POSTS: Apple’s Big Patent Win: A Shot Across the Bow of All Android Device Manufacturers Next Stop for Apple-Samsung: Appeals Court Wall Street Reacts to Apple’s Legal Win Over Samsung: Maybe, Let’s Not Kill All the Lawyers!
