US District Judge Lucy H. Koh in San Jose (CA) told Apple and Samsung lawyers that they must “focus and streamline” their cases to 25 patent claims, or elements of the patents at issue, and 25 accused products.
Judge Koh made the request from the bench in the latest of two related patent cases. The lawsuit was filed last year and covers technology in newer smartphones made by both companies, including Samsung’s Galaxy S III and Apple’s iPhone 5. “We’ll keep narrowing and narrowing,” Judge Koh said. “You’ve already been litigating this thing for a year; you must know something about what’s your best case.”
