Judge Koh asks if Apple's legal team had 'crack'
By Loh Ving Sung GooglePlus
17 August 2012 – As Apple's legal team attempted to submit 75 pages worth of briefing for rebuttal witnesses, the presiding Judge Koh lost her cool.
After the jury shuffled out of the courtroom, Koh proceeded to chew out Apple attorney William Lee, “I mean come on. 75 pages! 75 pages!"
"You want me to do an order on 75 pages, (and) unless you're smoking crack, you know these witnesses aren't going to be called when you have less than four hours."
Apple attorney William Lee stepped forward and told Koh, “First, your honor, I'm not smoking crack. I can promise you that."
Each side has 25 hours to make their case, and with 6 and half hours left on Apple's side - with two of them for closing arguments - small wonder why Koh is concerned.
After that Apple agreed to tone down the document, its attorney Michael Jacobs that the company did not mean to burden the court, and really expects to run through all of them.
Koh got frustrated with that too, and told the parties that the ongoing conversation would take up their dwindling trial time.
"I'm billing time because you all are being unreasonable," she said.
Judge Koh voiced that she preferred that Samsung and Apple settle the patent trial out of court.
