Samsung Attacks Juror to Get Apple Verdict Overturned
Claims Head Juror Failed to Disclose History
As many as surmised, Samsung plans to attack the patent-owning jury foreman as part of their plan to get the $1 billion patent loss against Apple
overturned. In a formal request to have the ruling thrown out
, Samsung claims jury foreman Velvin Hogan failed to disclose a past lawsuit against Seagate and his personal bankruptcy when asked about his history during jury selection. Samsung says the company has a "substantial strategic relationship" with Seagate and the lawyer who filed the complaint against Hogan is married to an attorney who now works for the firm representing Samsung in the trial against Apple. Defending himself, Hogan says he was only asked about lawsuits that occurred during the last ten years.

Re: from the voir dire (jury selection) transcript -
Without a doubt he should have recused from ANY jury duty.
Too recent, too personal, too likely to have some prejudice about something/someone in the legal system.
Now he gets to see it from the defendent side

said by cpsycho:The round corner thing is ludicrous, but also a juror not indicating a potential conflict in a case of this size is unacceptable.
Thing is Cr-apple should not have won, when prior art said they could not win. Square with round corners, Cr-apple: "yeah we came up with that idea". In reality they did no such thing. They just had the jury stocked with apple supporters and a judge that was an apple supporter.
Nobody should own round corners, if Apple does, no car, no flashlight, or door knob, or spoon / spork is safe.
