U.S. District Court Judge Lucy Koh has ordered that the CEOs of both Apple and Samsung meet once more in hopes that the patent- and design-related lawsuit between the two companies can be settled before the case goes to the jury. Koh believes that sending the case to the jury could turn out badly for either or both companies. "I see risk here for both sides," said Koh. "It is time for peace." The case has been underway for several week, with each company accusing the other of various infractions related to their smartphone and tablet businesses. At the heart of the case, Apple believes Samsung "slavishly copied" its iPhone and iPad designs. Both CEOs agreed to the judge's most recent request.

neither will budge.
Then they need to be told that if they don't reach a settlement by such and such a date then all their lawsuits will be dismissed with prejudice and no one gets anything. The judge has the right to do exactly that.
Perhaps one day we will live in a world where IOS and Android could live in peace. Until then, we will be infected with lawsuits, patent disputes and terrible upgrades.
