Apple and Samsung are in the midst of their heated legal battle, and the largest to date centers around their devices looking incredibly similar. And the two are in court, in addition to not agreeing on a lot of things, they can't even agree on where to sit in court.
All Things D reports that the problem is neither party wishes to think of themselves as defendants. A filing posted on Thursday by Samsung explained that "both parties will at times be acting as plaintiffs and both as defendants, and it is therefore important that both parties are treated the same."
Samsung wants both parties to be referred to as "claimants" and requests that its lawyers be allowed to sit at the plaintiff's table during certain periods in the legal proceedings. According to Sammy:
"Equal treatment of the parties with respect to where they sit while presenting their affirmative case will mitigate any prejudice to Samsung that may result from Apple being in closer proximity to the jury throughout the trial... It will also ensure that the jury does not draw any improper inference based on disparate treatment of the parties with respect to their positions in the courtroom."
The two most important tech companies in the world can't even agree on where to sit. How is the rest of the legal proceedings going to go? [All Things D]
