Judge: Apple, Samsung using courts as business strategy
Miami US District Judge Robert Scola is not very happy with Apple or Samsung. He recently accused both sides of having "no interest in efficiently and expeditiously resolving this dispute" and of using the legal proceedings "as a business strategy."
Bloomberg notes that the litigants have been battling in Florida since 2010 and currently account for more than 180 claims.
Judge Scola denied a request from both Apple and Samsung to reduce the scope of the case, saying, "without a hint of irony, the parties now ask the court to mop up a mess that they made." Instead of a mop job, the judge gave both parties four months to get their ducks in a row, as it were.
