Apple And Samsung CEOs To Meet In SF Court For Settlement TalksBy cheatmaster 08:27 Tue, 13 Jul 2021 Comments
The legal battle between Apple and Samsung has gone on for too long and it's not just us but even the US court feels the same. Which is why judge Lucy Koh has asked CEOs of both companies to sit down and settle the matter once and for all.
The CEOs of the two companies, Tim Cook of Apple and Gee-Sung Choi of Samsung, have agreed to meet in the San Francisco court to create settlement talks within the next 90 days, which will be overseen by the U.S. Magistrate Judge Joseph S. Spero.
Regarding the matter, Apple and Samsung assumed the following:
"As directed by the Court, Apple and Samsung are both willing to participate in a Magistrate Judge Settlement Conference with Judge Spero as mediator. At Apple, the chief executive officer and general counsel are the appropriate decision-makers, and they will represent Apple during the upcoming settlement discussions. At Samsung, the chief executive officer and general counsel are also the appropriate decision-makers, and they will represent Samsung during these settlement discussions."
Of course, just becautilize they have agreed to sit down and talk does not mean that they will settle. The court can go only as far as asking them to talk. This is something that Oracle and Google tried before but they are still suing each other in the courts. So although one can hope things gets settled in the end, that's not necessarily going to be the only outcome of this small meeting.
