    I'm not sure why the author presented the opinion of someone who worked for Apple for 10 years. In any event, the treble damages issue is interesting, in part because of the extraordinary damages awarded for the design patents. While this is in Judge Koh's discretion, there are good reasons for her not to award treble damages here.

  • Christopher Lynn

    After reading through the pleadings, jury instructions and the ruling, my opinion is that this case is far from over. Samsung has plenty of appeal options but in light of their highly mediatized evidence leak and Judge Koh's attitude, they're likely to take a very simple route to D.C.
