The judge in the Apple versus Samsung copying case has asked the former's lawyers to limit the amount of witnesses.
In fact the judge, Lucy Koh, put it rather more bluntly than that, asking them whether they had been "smoking crack" when they came up with their list of an additional 75 witnesses.
This is because each party only has 25 hours to present their case and their witnesses. Koh made the off-hand comment because it was unlikely that Apple could fit these witnesses into its allotted time.
Nothing about the case so far has been friendly, and Koh may be getting frustrated with the proceedings. According to The Guardian, she told Apple's lawyer that "unless you're smoking crack" an additional 75 witnesses would be unreasonable.
Also in court, a financial expert testified that Apple's damages claims, based on profits in the region of $2.5bn, were equally overstated and based on unrealistic Samsung margins. More realistic profits, said the expert who stood as a witness for Samsung, are $519m.
The case centres around whether Samsung has copied the design and features of the iPad and iPhone for the Galaxy range of products. Samsung disputes this and has already provided witnesses that show early incidences of some of the more contentious design elements. In return the Korean hardware firm has accused Apple of infringing on its patents.
According to The Guardian, Apple lawyers dismissed suggestions that they had been smoking any crack and confirmed that they would be able to cut down their list of experts.
