|You're absolutely right in that all the patents in question are garbage - would|
splitting up infringement/damages have gotten a different answer? Maybe, but
validity was put to the jury. Perhaps there wasn't enough time - that's
possible. Given Apple was (and still is) being completely
irrational/unreasonable, I'm not sure how you could convince them to narrow the
case either without just straight up refusing to hear it though.
Either way all of this is so insigificant in comparison to the jury foreman's
history/behaviour. I think people are looking at the verdict, deciding they
don't like it then looking back trying to find any issues at all without
thinking about how material they are. It's easy for us to say Samsung should
have had say 50 hours instead, but that's not based on anything at all other
than wanting a sane result. That's a reasonable goal, but the reason we got a
crazy result is that the jury was crazy - that much is obvious from the
interviews so far.
