Samsung in Trouble...!
Authored by: PJ on Monday, August 06 2012 @ 12:39 PM EDT
It worked already. Haven't you noticed the change in the media accounts? I have, anyway. And now the judge is on notice. She is undoubtedly sincere and trying to be fair, and she may not be aware that she isn't being perceived that way. In one Wall St. Journal article I can't find at the moment, she was quoted as saying in court that both sides were being treated equally as to being denied if late. I'll check that, but for sure they are not being treated equally in everything. She may become a lot more conscious of this matter now, and that is a good thing.

In my experience, people who have a bias never see it in themselves, unless an outsider tells them that it's so. Then they deny it, and if they are a bit deeper than average, sometimes they'll think about it some more and realize it's so. We'll see what she does going forward. But for sure, it's good for the appeal that the entire matter is in the record. If there wasn't such a big fuss, it wouldn't have been in the record. I'm sure Quinn thought of that in advance. It was a bold move, for sure. He took a chance, but he was also careful. In his filing with the court, for example, he pointed out that it was Samsung the company that put out the statement, not him personally. So, how do you sanction him? Maybe because he OK'd it. But that's a bit thin, so maybe he's just a lot more experienced than the judge. I'm just saying. I don't know all the ins and outs, so we are just guessing, but that is possible, that he factored in a relatively green judge.
