Samsung Seeks to Overturn Apple Patents Verdict
Samsung is seeking to have the verdict that it infringed Apple patents overturned after it expressed concerns about a member of the Jury which found it guilty.
In a filing, Samsung is also alleging that several of the Judges decisions during the lengthy court case were "unfair".
The company made the request last month, but the papers had been sealed until now.
Samsung's main concern relates to one member of the Jury, the foreman Velvin Hogan who disclosed that he had been involved in a prior lawsuit, but also failed to note that he had been sued by his previous employer, Seagate and had filed for personal bankruptcy.
The Seagate issue is significant, as Samsung is a major shareholder in the company, and its lawsuit against the Jury foreman could be seen to have influenced his decisions.
Samsung also says that as foreman, he had overstepped acceptable standards during the Jury deliberations, making "incorrect and extraneous" comments about the case.
His later comments about the case also suggest some degree of bias against the company it alleged, although he later said his comments had been taken out of context.
Samsung is seeking a fresh trial with a new Jury.
The appeal will be heard on the 6th December.
