District Court Judge Lucy Koh, who's hearing the Apple v Samsung patent infringement case, warned the companies Wednesday of the danger they both face in letting the suit and countersuit go to the jury.
The Wall Street Journal says she has urged their CEOs to meet again to resolve their differences.
The jury could get the complicated case next Tuesday.
Samsung has been presenting its case since Apple rested on Monday. It has been presenting evidence of prior art clouding the validity of Apple's patents.
Judge Koh wants the companies to narrow their claims, anticipating a mixed verdict that could force changes in products or result in permanent injunctions. "If you all want to keep over-reaching, it's up to you," Koh said. "But I think it would be better to streamline this case."
