MadAmos: From the judge's wikipedia page: " From 2002 until 2008, Koh worked as a litigation partner at the Silicon Valley office of the law firm McDermott Will & Emery representing technology companies in patent, trade secret and commercial civil matters."

I'm sure she'll be perfectly fair in a trial over essentially a patent over a rectangle shape. Nope, no chance she might have a conflict at all. No chance that she might exclude evidence that shows prior art or that the patent is obvious and thus invalid.



So a judge overseeing a patent dispute between tech companies has a background in patent disputes between tech companies? You're mistaking bias for competence. You need a lot more than that to prove that there's a conflict of interest. Feel free to look at the ABA website (which publishes both the model code applicable to attorneys and the code applicable to judges) which should give you some idea of what to look for.

1) It's not a "trial over essentially a patent over a rectangle shape". Isn't is a bit ironic that you're criticizing a judge on patent law when you apparently have no understanding of patent law?

2) In fact, Samsung is countersuing Apple for infringement. They'd be pretty pissed off to hear that their communications algorithms are really just rectangle shapes.

3) Since Samsung and Apple are both tech companies with strong patent portfolios, where exactly is she supposed to have a bias?

I don't get how them releasing the information to the media is an indication of their willingness to infringe.
