We are under two weeks away from the start of the heavyweight courtroom battle between Apples and Samsung, and the pre-trial shenanigans are getting intense. Both companies are scrambling and trying to control how things are described in the courtroom, as well as what the public is allowed to hear.
As we approach Apple's upcoming summer-blockbuster trial with Samsung, both parties were busy last week peppering the court with motions and statements. Apple is trying to keep the court focused on the big four patents it will be asserting; Samsung, however, is trying to keep the court focused on the way that other guy, Judge Posner, manhandled and cancelled Apple's big case against Motorola last month.
Will this case against Samsung actually get to go to trial? Will it be the big intellectual property victory Apple has been seeking for the past few years as it battled Android device manufactures around the globe?

It happens every summer. We get all excited with the hype for an upcoming blockbuster, and it turns out to be a dud. Last week, Judge Posner wearied of the pretrial drama between Apple and Motorola and effectively told everyone that the show is over, now go home.
