Samsung hires UK judge who forced Apple to apologize to Samsung

Samsung hires judge who forced Apple to issue public apologies to the firm

| Business, Financial & Legal News | Posted: Mar 1, 2013 4:14 am

In an interesting move, Samsung has hired the UK judge who forced Apple to issue a public apology to the firm. Samsung has brought the judge onto their legal team to help them fight claims of infringement levied by Ericsson. Clearly this could end up being a conflict of interest, though it is apparently not illegal.

Sir Robin Jacob is reportedly not working on any projects that relate to Apple. If judges continue to be hired by companies they ruled in favor of, some legislation will have to be passed as this has the potential to create some serious conflicts of interest. What do you think? Should it be illegal already?
