Apple Inc. v. Motorola, Inc., No. 11C 8540, Slip Op. (N.D. Ill. Jan. 16, 2012) (Posner, J. sitting by designation).
In light of the upcoming trial of this case – in stages beginning with liability on June 11, 2012 – and the interest because of both the high profile parties and the fact that Seventh Circuit Judge Posner is presiding over the case, I am going to go out of order and profile a significant number of opinions from this case during June.
Judge Posner ordered the parties to submit two experts to be Court-appointed damages experts for the case. Should the parties not be able to agree on two experts to nominate, the Court will voir dire the experts and counsel to determine why the parties failed to agree.
