    The only question I have is what "guideline" was used when the jury was picked? Do they have to be indifferent to either side, have no previous knowledge of the case, not own or have working knowledge of the devices being discussed? If that is the case then...... I'm just thinking along the lines of a criminal court and how a jury gets picked.

    A little intelligence goes along way. I am guessing the Jury didn't have any because both of their devices are nothing a like.
  4. I would actually recommend reading the Groklaw article, if you don't exactly know all the details. There were so many mistakes done, that I think this case is a tossed one. On the simple note that a jury usually isn't capable of handling, large corporate patent cases such as this one. Otherwise it would be pretty much mindless work, to pass judgement on these kinds of cases.

    Good suggestion... one thing that stood out to me was the juror who said that the Billion dollar settlement was done to 'send a message'. but the law states that the dollar amount in a case like this is supposed to be based on lost revenue not on what you feel is a fair punishment. They completely missed the boat on that one.
