Judge Paul Grewal of the U.S. court invited Apple and Samsung to add to the list of mobile devices in violation of a patent by both parties.
The lawsuit came after the two companies to investigate the technology violate patents and throws an argument in front of a judge.
However, it appears that Judge Grewal did not agree with the argument that Apple is going to sue Android Jelly Bean to Samsung. According to him, Android Jelly Bean is a product made by Google, not Samsung.
“Samsung has no control over the content design of Android Jelly Bean, because this is a Google product where Samsung can not develop it,” Judge Grewal argued in a statement. Court allows lawsuits only really associated with Samsung.
In August, after a one month trial, the jury of the Federal Court of San Jose claimed Samsung violated 6 of 7 patents Apple smartphone. South Korean companies are also required to pay a fine of $1.051 billion.
However, the jury did not state that the tablet Galaxy Tab violate Apple patents.
The decision of the jury is not “knock the hammer” by Judge Lucy Koh, who became leader of the session. The case is going to proceed in December 2012.
Samsung is trying to fight the judgment of the jury. While Apple, will try to block it permanently declared Samsung products infringe patents.
Besides the U.S., the legal dispute between Apple and Samsung is also taking place in the UK, Germany, Netherlands, Australia, and South Korea.
