Judge admonishes Apple, Samsung for not following court orders


Two days ahead of the first post-trial hearing in the patent infringement fight between Apple and Samsung, a federal court judge has signaled to lawyers for both companies that she expects them to follow her instructions and work by her rules.

In an order signed Tuesday, Judge Lucy Koh of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, admonished both sides for their filings with the court.

"Despite this clear direction, both parties submitted voluminous documents with their post-trial motions," Koh wrote on Tuesday's order. "The Court plans to strike from the record all of the material submitted in violation of the Court's Order."

Koh had previously imposed page limits on the filings each company could make as part of the post-trial process. Samsung was limited to a 35-page limit on its filing in opposition of the verdict and Apple to a 15-page response to Samsung's filing. Each could file supporting documentation.
