Samsung has requested that the judge overseeing its patent lawsuit against Apple toss the guilty verdict and $1.05 billion fine due to jury misconduct. According to Samsung, the jury foreman, Velvin Hogan, didn't adequately disclose his relationship with Seagate, a partner of Samsung's, nor did he disclose a lawsuit that occurred between himself and Seagate. "Mr. Hogan's failure to disclose the Seagate suit raises issues of bias that Samsung should have been allowed to explore," said Samsung. Samsung is requesting a new trial. Samsung was found to be violating a number of Apple smartphone patents in the August 24 jury decision. Hogan denied Samsung's allegations.
