Samsung could face court penalty over lawyer's oversight

Martyn Williams | Aug. 10, 2012
Samsung could face penalties from the U.S. District Court in Northern California after one of its lawyers involved in the patent battle against Apple admitted that she hadn't file the paperwork necessary to practice law in front of the court.

In his notice on Wednesday, Grewal held out the possibility of penalties but didn't specify what they might be.

Samsung has already faced at least one penalty for legal errors.

The case revolves around a basic allegation that Samsung copied Apple's iPhone and iPad designs in its own products. Samsung had hoped to argue that Apple came up with those designs based on influences from other companies, including Sony. But it was stopped from presenting several "Sony-style" mock designs because that evidence wasn't brought up fast enough during the preparatory phase for the current jury trial.
