    US Judge Thinks Apple's "Smoking Crack" with 75 Page Witness list

    Judge says Apple's 'smoking crack' with giant witness list | Apple - CNET News

    The judge in the case between Apple and Samsung once again loses her cool, chiding Apple for lining up too many last-minute witnesses.


    SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Tempers boiled over in court this morning, with the judge in the case between Apple and Samsung flat out yelling at Apple for trying to book too many witnesses in its last few hours.

    "I am not going to be running around trying to get 75 pages of briefings for people who are not going to be testifying," U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh told Apple's lawyer Bill Lee.

    "I mean come on. 75 pages! 75 pages! You want me to do an order on 75 pages, (and) unless you're smoking crack, you know these witnesses aren't going to be called when you have less than four hours," Koh said.

    "You're honor, I can assure you, I'm not smoking crack," Lee replied matter-of-factly.


    The comments come as both sides are crunched for time. Each company gets 25 hours to make their case. Samsung is down to its last hour and a half, with Apple at six and a half -- time it plans to use cross-examining Samsung's witnesses and bringing up its own experts to rebut some of Samsung's claims. After that, the two companies get two hours for their closing arguments, something Koh threatened to shorten if both sides keep filing more paperwork.

    In Apple's case, the company wants to bring up more than 20 witnesses to go up against some of the testimony Samsung has presented over the past few days. Samsung took the offense after Apple rested its case.

    Koh's blow-up is just the latest in recent days. Earlier this week she told both companies that she didn't trust any information that came from each side's lawyers, asking instead to see papers. Yesterday she followed that up by saying that the two companies were filing too much, and that she and her staff were completely overwhelmed with the piles of paperwork from Apple and Samsung's "legion of lawyers."

    "If it turns out I went through 75 pages for people who are not going to be called, I am going to think of a proper tax for that," Koh warned.

    So the judge asks for paperwork then blows her stack when she gets exactly what she asked for?

    she asks apple for stuff that can fit within a four hour limit (both companies have 24 hours to defend and attack, apple wasted most of it.)


    so when you give somebody 75 pages of people to fit within 4 hours your insane.

    Not when she asks for the paperwork and it contains only 20 witnesses to rebutt Samsung's claims, of which a handful may testify. It's called due process - the judge is being anal and a hypocrite.

    If you're going to sling mud, don't forget the same judge said Samsung demonstrated the greatest contempt of court she'd ever seen by leaking the alleged concept designs to the press.

    And let's not forget Samsung's stupidity in claiming Apple ripped off Sony's design, therefore it was ok for Samsung to rip off Apple. Problem is, the Sony design was Apple's in-house concept and had nothing to do with Sony.

    Glass houses, throwing stones...you get the idea.
