Apple, Samsung Lawyers Interview Potential Jurors for Trial

July 30 (Bloomberg) -- Attorneys for Apple Inc. and Samsung Electronics Co. began interviewing potential jurors for a trial over their mobile-device patent dispute in San Jose, California.

Apple lawyer William Lee and Samsung lawyer Bill Price started questioning individual jurors today after U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh finished interviewing a pool of about 24 jurors to select a 10-member panel for the trial. Koh said the jury will be selected after a break.

Jurors will decide each company’s claims that its rival infringed patents covering designs and technology for mobile devices, with potential damage awards reaching billions of dollars.

The case is the first U.S. jury trial of a battle being fought on four continents for dominance of a mobile-device market that Bloomberg Industries said was $312 billion last year.

The case is Apple Inc. v. Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd., 11-cv-01846, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California (San Jose).
