There Will Be No Adverse Inference Jury Instructions in Apple v. Samsung After All ~pj
Monday, August 20 2012 @ 11:54 PM EDT

This is a parable with a lesson to be learned. I'll tell you the lesson, and then I'll tell you all that happened today on the topic of adverse inference jury instructions in the Apple v. Samsung trial. The bottom line is, after a hearing today, there won't be any. The earlier adverse inference instruction that the magistrate ordered [PDF] against Samsung has been dropped. And it was Apple that dropped it, when the judge gave them a choice to drop it or get an equal wording against Apple. And the lesson is, just because litigators know how to be super-aggressive, it doesn't always pay to act that way. We had a reporter there today in the courtroom, and here's how it all played out.

First, we had the paperwork. The judge presiding over the case, the Hon. Lucy Koh, filed her final version of proposed jury instructions [PDF], and her decision was, subject to argument at the hearing, that there should be identical adverse inference jury instructions regarding both Apple and Samsung's failures to preserve evidence. However, at the a hearing set for this [PDF], the parties got to argue about it some more. Apple already did on paper. Here's Apple's filing. We had a reporter there today, attending the hearing, and he just wrote to me that there the judge thought it wouldn't be fair to single out Samsung alone, because Steve Jobs' emails were never held for litigation, for example, and neither side saved email from the date the magistrate thought was the right date. So when she said that, that there would be no adverse inference instruction against Samsung without one against Apple, too, Judge Koh told the parties if they preferred, she offered to drop both, and Apple said, OK to that.

The judge's proposed version, with much milder language than the magistrate judge's, read like this:

[Apple/Samsung Electronics Company] has failed to preserve evidence for [Samsung's/Apple’s] use in this litigation after [Apple's/Samsung Electronics Company’s] duty to preserve arose. Whether this fact is important to you in reaching a verdict in this case is for you to decide.
Apple didn't like that at all. From our reporter, bruno:
*Adverse Inference*

There was a lot of back and forth about email spoliation. This revolved around a few points:

First of all, when they established the date by which evidence needed preservation, it became a concern of having a double standard on when Samsung and Apple should have started preserving evidence and putting people on litigation hold. For example, they didn't put Steve Jobs on litigation hold until much later than other people. Judge Koh said something to the effect that surely the plaintiff, Apple, knows better than the defendant when litigation is about to commence. So why, then, didn't it put a litigation hold?

Apple seemed to present more evidence of spoliation on Samsung's part. Samsung however made the argument that they had similar evidence of the same on Apple's part. After arguments by Apple's lawyer, in the end, Judge Koh seemed focused particularly about why Steve Jobs wasn't on litigation hold and the company's policy of automatic notices when your email box gets full.

In the final analysis, Judge Koh said that she was going to make a similar adverse inference on both sides but offered not to do it on either. The Apple lawyer consented to that.

So that's the end of that.

I don't think either of them failed in any duty, personally. I never did, and this outcome seems fair. The parties just picked a different point in time than the magistrate judge picked, but Apple insisted on pursuing an adverse inference instruction against Samsung, got it, and then that inspired Samsung to seek an equal instruction, and now it has come back to bite Apple. None of this comes as a surprise to me, since the facts were so clear in Samsung's motion asking for an equal adverse inference jury instruction against Apple, unless the one against it were dropped. Some things are just obvious. Like I say, sometimes it's better not to be as aggressive as you know how to be.

Picking the date to start preserving evidence for trial is a sticky wicket, frankly. You do the best you can, and the trigger is supposed to be when you believe litigation will occur, and here Samsung actually started preserving evidence long, long before Apple did, almost a year before Apple did, so it's only fair, really, that the judge sanction, mildly, both, if she wanted to sanction either. And why sanction either in a fact pattern like this?

That means this is another failed prediction for FOSSPatents. Actually, three of them. First Florian Mueller wrote,1 when the magistrate issued the sanction against Samsung alone, that as a result Samsung now would have a credibility problem with the jury, which could be serious for Samsung. I corrected his misunderstanding of what was happening in this article, where you will find many more details. Mueller also called Samsung's subsequent motion for an equal adverse inference instruction "ridiculous", a motion "without merit", and one he predicted the judge would deny.2 That was wildly wrong, as you can see from the result.

Today he wrote that there would be equal adverse inference instructions against both Apple and Samsung, calling it a "surprising" development, but opined that Apple "may very well" win on appeal on this point.3 He wrote too soon, probably thinking that the judge's proposed order was final, missing the detail that the judge's proposed jury instruction was subject to a conference today. You can't appeal what you agreed to, as Apple did today.

Why keep pointing out his errors, you ask? Not for fun. Because it's not fun. It is, however, part of journalistic ethics to correct misinformation that get published. It's what journalism is for, to present the most accurate account that you can. And that sometimes means you have to correct what others have written. It's also part of Groklaw's mission to do antiFUD, and we have done that from day one.

That's the other lesson. If you are not sure about something having to do with a legal case, ask a *lawyer* or someone with some training in the field. That's what I do.

Analysts don't go to law school, generally speaking, or have other related legal training or experience, and when it gets detailed and complex in a trial, they can miss the legal complexities, because legalese isn't English. It has English words, but it's a specialty language. In fact, it is the first thing they teach you when you go to paralegal school, how to figure out what the legalese is saying. And the rest you learn by experience, and if you don't have any of that, how can you be expected to predict with accuracy what will happen? Most lawyers I know don't predict outcomes anyway in jury trials. There are too many variables.

Here's the latest on the docket, just to show you what an extraordinary day it was for filings, most of which I haven't even begun to explain, but you can sum it up that the parties are arguing about what the jury can hear and see in closing statements tomorrow and what the rest of the jury instructions should say. Note that the tentative jury verdict form [PDF] is now posted, as well, though it could be altered still:

We have started a second page for the Apple v. Samsung Timeline, because it's gotten too long for a single page. You'll find everything from 1754 on there on Apple v. Samsung2, now on the menu list. We don't have all the documents, because it's too expensive. If there are any you particularly want, let me know, though.
