Samsung Angers Judge by Sending Rejected Evidence From Apple Trial to the Media

Nilay Patel:

The Apple vs. Samsung trial was always destined to be a circus, but Samsung’s already causing trouble on the first day of testimony: Judge Lucy Koh is furious that the company sent the press rejected evidence after the court overruled repeated attempts to introduce it at trial.

Anyone else get the feeling Samsung thinks they’re going to lose this? From Samsung’s accompanying statement:

The excluded evidence would have established beyond doubt that Samsung did not copy the iPhone design. Fundamental fairness requires that the jury decide the case based on all the evidence.

Are they insinuating they want the jury to see this? That last sentence sounds like something that could come back to haunt them.
