Apple And Samsung CEOs To Meet In Court For Patent Dispute Settlement Talks
According to FOSS Patents’
“As directed by the Court, Apple and Samsung are both willing to participate in a Magistrate Judge Settlement Conference with Judge Spero as mediator. At Apple, the chief executive officer and general counsel are the appropriate decision-makers, and they will represent Apple during the upcoming settlement discussions. At Samsung, the chief executive officer and general counsel are also the appropriate decision-makers, and they will represent Samsung during these settlement discussions”.
According to the report, the settlement talks will be "semi-voluntary", which means that the court can force the companies to meet and talk, but it cannot compel the parties to reach an agreement. Also it is in the best interest of the two parties to make their heads available for the settlement talks in order to demonstrate a good faith effort at settling the dispute.
