Samsung angered the courts when they showed off dismiss evidence in their patent lawsuit against Apple. They sent its dismissed slides from its legal battle with Apple to the press, and drawing the ire of the judge overseeing the case.
Samsung's lawyer John Quinn argued that a slide containing phones designed prior to the iPhone unveiling include the F700 phone, and it should be counted as evidence. The judge threatened to sanction the lawyer and that seemed like the end of it, but then Samsung sent them the slides with the following message:
The Judge's exclusion of evidence on independent creation meant that even though Apple was allowed to inaccurately argue to the jury that the F700 was an iPhone copy, Samsung was not allowed to tell the jury the full story and show the pre-iPhone design for that and other phones that were in development at Samsung in 2006, before the iPhone. The excluded evidence would have established beyond doubt that Samsung did not copy the iPhone design. Fundamental fairness requires that the jury decide the case based on all the evidence.
