The CEOs of Apple and Samsung are reportedly taking trial judge Lucy Koh's advice and will try to resolve their patent dispute before the jury does, putting one or the other or both companies at risk.
Bloomberg said Monday morning that it heard from "a person familiar with the matter" that Tim Cook and Kwon Oh Hyun will talk again before the jury starts deliberating. They went through such formalities before the trial started.
In what may be an indication of the futility of any further negotiations, the sides told Kohn over the weekend that they had been unable to narrow their claims as she wanted.
The jury is supposed to get Apple's suit and Samsung's countersuit Tuesday or Wednesday after closing arguments and what has been described as 100-pages of instructions.
Apple wants as much as $2.88 billion in damages, but more than any money it wants a permanent injunction. Samsung wants $421.8 million in royalties as a way to nudge Apple into giving it a license.
