According to reports, U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul Grewal accepted Samsung‘s motion to see the patent agreement between HTC and Apple because it could potentially help their defense against Apple to stop a potential sales ban in the United States. The judge ordered Apple to hand over information designated as “attorney-eyes-only.”
“Many third parties to this case have had their licensing agreements disclosed subject to an attorneys-eyes-only designation because the confidential financial terms were clearly relevant to the dispute between Apple and Samsung,” court documents stated as quoted in a report.
Apple throws a bit of tantrum in response to the judge’s ruling and decided to add six more Samsung devices to its patent infringement lawsuit against the South Korean tech giant. The newest additions are the following as reported by the Atlantic Wire:
- Samsung’s Galaxy S III running the latest Android software (which recently passed the iPhone in global dominance)
- Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2
- Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 8.9 Wifi
- Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
- Samsung’s Rugby Pro
- Samsung’s Galaxy S III Mini
