Samsung had previously asked Apple to show them their upcoming products in an attempt to make sure their future devices are not subjected to any potential infringement claims like the one Apple has currently filed against them. Apple has now filed a motion against Samsung in the District Court of California requesting a judge to deny the aforementioned request.
The ongoing battle between Samsung and Apple …
It is reported that Apple claims that Samsung’s request is not a good faith attempt to obtain information needed to defend against a preliminary injunction. Rather, it is a transparent and improper attempt to harass Apple by demanding extremely sensitive trade secrets that have no relevance to Apple's infringement claims or to Samsung's defenses to a preliminary injunction.
The document filed by Apple states that Samsung has made no display about Apple’s future products. Apple therefore has been claiming that Samsung's intentions to peek into its future designs is plain harassment.
The report ends by saying that a judge will make a decision on Samsung’s request to view Apple’s products on Friday.
