Samsung Asks to Limit Apple References to Jobs at Trial

Samsung Electronics Co. asked a federal judge to restrict references by Apple Inc.’s lawyers to the company’s late founder Steve Jobs at a jury trial scheduled for July 30 over mobile-device patents.

Harold McElhinny, a lawyer for Apple, told U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh in San Jose, California, yesterday that he plans to show jurors two slides of Jobs during opening statements in the case. The slides include one when Jobs announced the release of the iPhone in 2007 -- an “announcement that went around the world,” the lawyer said.
