Apple needs to go away and die. Im tired of hearing about this just like im tired of hearing about Chick-fil-a and Dan Kathy's nonsense.
All Apple wants to do is control the world IMO. Progress is pointless to them if they dont create it and they get scared when they get some true competition.
Dont get me wrong, they make a great product but so does Samsung. The similarities are minor and dont warrant all this legal BS

Hey, Apple sends off-duty cops to shake down people and make them think they have no choice but to allow and illegal search, so I'd put nothing past them. Koh may no be paid off, but there is nothing fair and impartial about her actions. I see almost no way that had she allowed it in that it would have been deemed inadmissible down the road, so her judgement is more than questionable.
All I can say is that this can't be do anything to gain Apple support among anything but the most diehard of fans. It's whatever, though. Dinosaurs will die.

Please! Evidence gets submitted as much during a trial as before a trial. There's a different between evidence and discovery. Discovery needs time to be examined by the defense counsel one is presented by the prosecutor. Any evidence refuting accusations should be admissible in court after the accusations are made.
There IS a reason they chose to go to court in California. As usual they have their freak bastardization of the law that let's stuff like this happen. They are limited to 35 interrogatories. This case will be appealed no matter what the outcome because of California.

By excluding this the judge has already guaranteed grounds for appeal. So then what is the point of THIS trial?
I'd tend to think a slick lawyer can get around this, though. Get a few Apple employees on the stand and ask the right questions, and you basically backdoor the impact, if not the evidence itself...unless said employees will risk perjuring themselves.
