On August 21, 2012, Atlanta partner Michael Lasky was interviewed and quoted by Law360 in an article titled, "Apple-Samsung Jurors May Rely on Instinct Instead of Law.
" Lasky explained that "since Apple's infringement case and demand for billions in damages is based largely on its allegation that Samsung's smartphones and tablets look very similar to the iPhone and iPad, the jury's view on that point will be key, making it difficult to guess the outcome" of the case.
The article describes what can be expected as jury deliberation begins in the highly-watched patent dispute between Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics Cd. Ltd. Following three weeks of testimony, a nine-member jury was instructed and dismissed for deliberation on August 21. "Especially with so many issues to consider, it may be difficult for nine people, each with their own feelings about the smartphone industry and the companies involved, to agree on a verdict," Lasky told Law360. "After all the witnesses, evidence and mountains of court filings, 'it really comes down to who has the most persuasive story.'"
