Apple Claims Samsung Destroyed Evidence

Posted May 11, 2012

Apple has filed a motion in the Northern District of California alleging that Samsung had intentionally destroyed documents that they were ordered to hand over to Apple. Apple described Samsung’s actions as a “spoilation of evidence” and they want the judge to inform the jury that Samsung acted in bad faith in failing to meet their legal duties. A hearing for Apple’s motion is scheduled on June 7th. Samsung’s reply deadline is May 16th, but the company is already seeking an extension to May 29th. Samsung is hoping to have the hearing pushed back to July 10th.
