A Handsome Atlas: Wildly Awesome Data Visualizations from the Nineteenth Century Judge agrees to consider Samsung's accusations of juror misconduct in Apple patent trial Judge Lucy Koh has agreed to consider questions on whether Samsung's decisive legal loss in August was improperly influenced by jury foreman Velvin Hogan. Last month, Samsung asked the court to investigate whether Hogan had concealed information about previous legal entanglements that could have revealed an anti-Samsung bias, and whether he introduced outside information that affected the verdict. Samsung hopes to prove that foreman Velvin Hogan lied by omission Yesterday, Judge Koh issued a statement saying that at a December 6th hearing, "the Court will consider the questions of whether the jury foreperson concealed information during voir dire [jury selection], whether any concealed information was material, and whether any concealment constituted misconduct. That last part is relevant because Samsung has filed a motion to require Apple to disclose when it became aware of "certain information" about Hogan, something that will be addressed on December 6th.
