Court Denies Samsung Request To See iPhone 5 and iPad 3
Let us remind you some facts about the legal battle between Apple and Samsung. Samsung filed the countersuit in response to the Apple’s suit, where demanded Apple hand over the iPhone 5 and iPad 3 or their newest prototypes to investigate them and to avoid misunderstanding in future. Though, Judge denied Samsung’s request, having explained that “Apple’s request for expedited discovery was far more justified and far less prejudicial”. Apple required early access to all Samsung’s new devices.
The judge made a lot of effort in her 11-page order to explain that Samsung is entitled to “parity” but its motion was overreaching in this case. Instead, it may be necessary for the court to evaluate such a motion against the background of the iPhone 5 (as far as any Samsung phones are concerned) and the iPad 3 (as far as any Samsung tablet computers are concerned), whenever Apple is in a position to present those products.
