Judge accuses Apple of 'smoking crack'
- 19 August, 2012 13:05
The judge in the high profile Apple v Samsung case has proclaimed that the lawyer representing Apple must be on drugs.
Read about the case here.
Lawyer, William Lee, was accused by Judge Lucy Koh of "smoking crack" when he presented a 75-page list of 22 witnesses that they wanted to call in for rebuttal testimony.
The case was only given a set number of hours, and it was wearing thin. Judge Koh had already been vocal about the arduousness of the Apple and Samsung trial.
When seeing the document the Judge exclaimed: "You want me to do an order on 75 pages tonight? When, unless you're smoking crack, you know that these witnesses are not going to be called?"
Mr Lee replied with a rather poetic: "Your honour, I'm not smoking crack. I can promise you that."
Apparently Apple's attorneys offered to cut the list to a shorter version; however Judge Koh wouldn't accept the list now in any shape or form.
William Lee has since replied that a couple of the witnesses on the list were Samsung's.
The move could potentially have made it harder for Samsung's attorneys to prepare.
The trial has been criticised as being highly theatrical, with the intricacy and length of the trial obviously taking its toll on Judge Koh.
